“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!”
Sometimes it’s hard to see past the brokenness,
It’s easy to get caught up in our messes and that we forget to look up.
Up to the one who holds it all
Who holds us all in his hands.
Up to the one who made us with hearts that can be thankful
For every new day,
For sunsets that set the sky on fire
For the way the air feels clean after a long rain
Or the silence in the air during the first snow
For the stars that illuminate the night sky
For fresh cut grass
For wildflowers at traffic stops
For fresh water and food on the table
For hot dogs at baseball games
For the way that people get excited when they talk about something they love
For a friend who knows your name.
When the news is frightening, when a heart is broken,
Sometimes all it takes is a smile
To remember the good, to see God,
And be grateful.
