Father God, in the name of your dear son Jesus Christ, we are so grateful for the time you have given us on this earth. You allowed me to wake up this morning to see this beautiful day. Thank you for the sun that keeps us warm and help things grow, to look around and see your mighty works and realize that you are still in control no matter what it looks like.
