A Poem – Rejoice and be Thankful

Each day, upon my daily round,
I find myself on holy ground –

The morning-glories on my fence
Inspire quiet reverence.
Just one small, tender seedling grew,
And now, this miracle in blue.
A robin in the apple tree
Sings out his glad doxology.
I hear the pure, unsullied joy
Of laughter from a little boy;
I bow before the firm belief
And faith of one who lives with grief;
I watch a jet plane skim the skies and marvel at man’s enterprise;
I look upon a field of wheat and thank God for the bread we eat;
I watch the benedictive rain
On low-bowed heads of flower and grain.
A friend drops in, a neighbour calls, the lamps are lit, night gently falls;
Contentment settles with the sun
In labours of the day well done.
So many little altars there,
So many simple calls to prayer,
So many reasons for thanksgiving –
The sacraments of daily living
~ Helen Lowrie Marshall
