    Default Thanksgiving

    Each day, upon my daily round,
    I find myself on holy ground-
    The morning glories on my fence
    Inspire quiet reverence.
    Just one small, tender seedling grew,
    And now, this miracle in blue,
    A robin in the apple tree
    Sings out his glad doxology.
    I hear the pure,unsullied jou
    Of laughter from a little boy;
    I bow before the firm belief
    and faith of one who lives with grief;
    I watch a jet plane skim the skies
    And marvel at man's enterprise;
    I look upon a field of wheat
    And thank God for the bread we ear;
    On low-bowed heads of flower and grain.
    A friend drops in , a neighbor calls,
    The lamps arelit, night gently falls;
    Contentment settles with the sun
    In labors of the day well done.
    So many little altars there,
    So many simple calls to prayer,
    So many reasons for thanksgiving-
    The scaraments of daily living.
