I Thank Thee.......

Our Father which art in Heaven

Hallowed be thy Name, Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,  Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass
against us.  Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the Kingdom and the
Power and the Glory forever and ever.   Amen

Father... We thank thee,  We thank thy Power and we thank thy Holy Spirit for all things.
First we thank thee for loving us.  If you had not first loved us,  creation would not be.  If you had not first loved us,  we would not have been created in your "Image".  If you had not first loved us all these things would not have been added.  Your love towards us is beyond our ability to understand it in this earth.  There is only one thing I can use to try to understand how great thy love is and that is ALL CREATION.  Beginning with the House you have built for your children... the universe.

Ending with in this earth,  the willing sacrifice made for us ( the ones that fell ) so that we in our fallen state might still have hope to be with you again.  Father,  there are no words for this love.

Thank you for first loving us.

We thank thee Father for the mansion (planet) you prepared for us to inhabit.  A glorious garden beyond beauty.  Who could imagine the mountains and rivers,  the trees and flowers,  the grasses and herbs and the glorious life that fills all of it.  The waterfalls and the mist created by them.  The beauty in all the creatures you placed here for our enjoyment from the butterfly to the elephant and beyond.  LORD I can't imagine.  I am so very thankful for you Father.  The depths of the seas and all the magnificent creatures within them of which we know so little.  The colors and uniqueness of all the different species...who could imagine?   The waters crest the land and leave behind for us to see some of the splendor of you.  The wind blows where it will and gives us fresh air to breathe in and moves the seeds around the mansion you created for us to start more new life and replenish the earth.  It is all alive and all provided by you for our enjoyment. 

Thank you Father for our most beautiful home. 

We thank thee Father for the Heavens above.  Part of our home that we can see.  The sun to give us warmth and light.  Without the sun we would have no life.  I'm sure it provides even more than we know of.  The seasons we enjoy here and each one of them provide different needs for us.  The  moon gives us light in the darkness of night.  The moon and the stars they rule by night.  Every star is placed by you.  The atmosphere you have placed around our home to protect us from the dangers of space.  The asteroid belts perfectly placed to keep us from extinction.  The perfect balance of our solar system to sustain life on this beautiful garden so full of life.  All for our enjoyment.

Thank you Father for loving us so.

Thank you Father for creating us in your very own "Image"
I know most of us do not really know what that means exactly but I do know that it means we can be like you.  We can never be you of course but you have made it so we can be like you.  How wonderful is that??  God you are so good!!!  You have given us a soul with your very breath,  I can't tell you how that makes me feel inside.  You formed us with your very hands and we are very special to you this I know.  Our physical bodies born so perfect and functioning so precise as to sustain life and life abundant.  Our spirit that lives and breathes after you in all of your godliness and righteousness if we should so choose.  Thank you Father for choice.  All your children have this most amazing gift of choice.  You are a loving Father that will never force your love on your children nor never force your children to love you.  As you are willing to do all things for your children,  we must also be willing to be part of all things.  I am very very thankful to be a part of this.
 I know there are many of your children that are lost from these truths.  I pray for them Father.  I also know how many many times you present these truths to all of your children thru out their lives so that they will have ample opportunity to see and hear
