Thank You for the Sun

Thank You for the Sun

It's been cold of late
With ice on the ground
And all of the clouds
Painted a dismal shade
of gray.

And no escape
To be found...
Until today
When the clouds made way
For the light.

From my place on the pew
It caught my eye:
Rich, golden light
Streaming through
The sanctuary.

And all that I could do
Was soak it in
And let my heart cry
"Thank You!"

And I do thank You
For warmth
For light
For love
For life.

Oh Father,
I've been undone.
Thank You!
Thank You for the sun!
