To Life

Living God,

For the simple fact of life, thank you. Just for being alive at all, even for an instant. Whatever be the joys and sorrows, the exaltations and the pains, thank you for life. It might not have been.

Without it we’d never know love, never look into a beloved face, never know what it means to commit to a cause, to falter and recover, to laugh out loud until it hurts. Without life we’d never meet a hummingbird face to face, snuggle with a pup, make an ice cream sundae for a child.

With life, what isn’t possible?

Life is a share in yours and once given, is given forever. It will take an eternity to begin to say thank you.

We can at least begin. Thank you.
