My sentiments exactly. And on the very first day of this incredible season I find myself thanking God for something I don't think I've ever thanked Him for before--AIR.
That's right just plain old air, that invisible stuff that surrounds us each moment, that makes life possible, that most of us never, ever think about.
Thank You Lord for air--
~for the life it gives us
~for sweet breezes blowing on arms in the mornings and across faces in the cool dark of night.
~for carrying wonderful fragrances to us stirring memories and longings in hearts and minds
~for lifting kites, balloons, birds, airplanes and our spirits soaring as we see them fly.
~for fluttering flags and rustling leaves and rasping cornstalks.
Thank you Lord for air.
1 Chronicles 16:34 (New King James Version)
Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
