Our Savior and our God
Thank You today for everything beautiful
You put before us
The grasp of a baby’s little hand in ours
The delicious aroma of freshly baked bread
Thank You, Lord for the enjoyment of Your creation
Please let us not take for granted one touch, smell, sight, taste or sound
You’ve given us
We lift up praise to You
In the Name of Jesus Christ, the Most High
