Brightening Our Day   2 comments

These would be

If I could choose

The birthday candles

I would choose

To celebrate this day

Bright as snow

Feathers woven from white rose petals

God’s gifts for every moment

Thank you Father-Mother, our Creator

That I’ve been born

And born again to celebrate

Birthdays here and now and one day soon in heaven

I hear the dawn of light breaking

Silently, smoothly, smashing into bits

The dark, bleak, black of night

Her silence heard so clearly

To all who dare to be reborn

With More than Words can Adequately Express to be Thankful For   Leave a comment

This image of Provincetown Harbor is one of my favorites. Taken just after sunrise on a not too long ago, jeweled September morning — Apropos for this Thanksgiving Day; the place where the Pilgrims first landed. Provincetown has been an inspiration to me and countless others all those years since the Mayflower made its way to its shore. There is an engraved plaque in the woodland near Pilgrim Heights that stands next to a babbling brook to mark the spot where the first settlers at last, finally found fresh drinking water. The plaque reads “…. And they were heartily glad” — The scene I picture is these ragged travel worn settlers on their knees refreshed and renewed by  their life-giving drink and saying in their heartily glad words…Thank you God! 😉

My prayer of thanks for this day:

 Lord You refresh my faith

And make me new, day by day

Each day different than the next

Thank you that You are here to lean upon

A place of endless rest

Oh why do I waver so

And worry endlessly

When you, at the right time, answer my prayers constantly

Refashioning my doubt and fears

To become tools to help another

I see this all so clear in hindsight

So I thank you God for your grace

You who are here and now, and promise life forever

You whose hand has formed me

First from earth’s soil, to be born in body and soul

Your miracles and love are never ending

And You remain a constant source of strength

Like rushing mountain water falling

You soothe my soul in darkened days of wavering faith

Preparing me to be born yet again like a new sun rising

Feeding me with hope anew
