This morning I gave thanks…
For a small bench,
Halfway up a steep climb
To pause and take in the view…

Half Way Bench

This morning I gave thanks…
For Friends across the world, and closer to home,
Who remembered and asked…
“How did it go?”

This morning I gave thanks…
For freedom to climb a hill and
Give thanks to God.

This morning
I gave thanks…

This morning
I gave
Thanks

Amen
