Dear Lord,


Thank God it’s free (your grace!).

Thank God it’s forgiven (my sins!).

Thank God it’s frequent (gatherings of your church!).

Thank God it’s fun (summer luaus, laughter!).

Thank God it’s faithful (your love!).

Thank God it’s faith-building (your word!)

Thank God it’s for-all (we’re all welcome!)

Oh, and thank God it’s Friday!




 It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praises to your name, O Most High;  to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night,  to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre.    For you, O LORD, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.  — Psalm 92:1-4
