Coffee for Your Heart- Counting the Ways

 

By Susie Teramura

 

Today I will

Show you

Gratitude,

 

I will give

You a present

Of words

That express

My appreciation,

 

For the favor,

For the favors,

For the naming

And calling

And choosing

Of my soul,

 

And for the many

Gifts given

Each day

To me.

 

Father, let me

Never stop,

Just like you

Never stop,

 

Because even

After a 24 hour 365 day

Thanksgiving fest

It still wouldn’t

Even come close

To enough,

 

For you are

More than words

Can say or

Songs can sing

More than

This world

Can contain.

You are beautiful,

And perfect,

And God most High.

 

Forever let me

Sing praise

To you.

 

Forever let me

Give you presents,

Word gifts

Wrapped in shiny

Gold bows,

 

Forever let me

Count the ways

That you

Are wonderful,

Forever.

 

 

Psalm 118:29

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
