For all the prayers, and pray-ers,
                     that were keeping me agoing!

And thankya, Lord,
                     That mirrors show a face
                     that almost looks like me!

Thankya, Lord,
                     That “ordinary” things
                     and ordinary ways
                     are new; and that
                     the “usual” landscapes,
                     the usual homescapes and
                     the familiar faces —
                     are wonderful and new.

Thankya, Lord,
                     That breathing is a privilege
                     and walking such a freedom!

And thankya, Lord,
                     For all those well trained people,
                     skilled through sacrifice; who know
                     the limits and the needs of those
                     stricken, prone, receiving help —
                     depending on their caring skills
                     in such an unfamiliar world.

Thankya, Lord,
                     For ordinary challenge
                     taken up again,
                     of Light and Life.

And thankya, Lord,
                     For such an invitation
                     opened up, again,
                     to be extravagant
                     in spending Love!

So: Thank You, thank You, thanks!


O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. (Psalm 106:1)
