I am thankful to the Lord, my God:
- for answered prayers
- for everyday things: the sheen of the sun on Ella's red coat, that Pete watches my every move and protects me, for the ridge of hair down the middle of Tink's calico back that divides the orange from the black and reminds me of a mohawk
- for the sunrise yesterday, and watching four blue herons flying from a central nighttime roosting place to their individual daily ponds- for turtles on the pond fence- that Cracker makes me laugh
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and
with all your soul and with all your strength.
Deuteronomy 6:5 (NIV)
