So Much

I saw the first light of day
The sun greeted me with a smile
The trees waved hello
Birds were singing for miles.

I became more aware
As I took in a lung full of air
I could feel my legs and arms
Throughout the night I faced no harm.

If that wasn’t enough
My room was full of stuff
I was surrounded by walls
And my family was resting safely down the hall.

As I went about my day
I noticed so much more
That I could make a list
Of things to be thankful for.

When night time arrived
I took out my lists
Page after page
Of the treasures that exist.

I added the moonlight and stars
As I lay upon my bed
Smiling in my heart
Thankful that I have no tears to shed.

Psalm 9:1-2 (MSG)

I’m thanking you, God, from a full heart, I’m writing the book on your wonders. I’m whistling, laughing, and jumping for joy; I’m singing your song, High God.
