Loving Lord, how grateful we are for the many joys in life that You in Your grace have bestowed on us in such abundance. Thank You for the simple things in life and those that we so often take for granted, for flowers and food, for mountains and streams, for our senses and the many joys that we gain from seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and touching.
Thank You for the joy of friends and family, for the sun and rain the seasons and the many phases of the weather that bring such variety, refreshment, warmth and healing. Thank You for the joy of singing praises to You, and thank You, Father, for the Lord Jesus in Whom is the fullness of joy. In His name we pray,
