Safe. Warm. Blessed.

Dear Lord, Thank you.  Thank you for the splendor of autumn. For the starry nights. For marshmallows roasted over fires with sticky fingers and family all around. Thank you for laughter and chestnuts and the squirrel frolicking in my yard. Thank you for pumpkins and blue birds and silly caterpillars that look like grand masterpieces of fine art when you stop and look at them up close. Thank you for music and the cool breeze that rustles the leaves and the warm blanket that keeps me warm despite it. Help us to see all the world’s majesty and remember that its meant to point us to Your Majesty.  Praise the Lord! Let every creatures praise your Holy Name. Praise the Lord! Amen
