Your Happy Willingness

Thank you, Lord, 
for your "happy willingness" to create, 
as Tozer phrased it. 

Thank you that you were pleased 
to form the heavens and the earth, 
night and day, 
Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. 

Thank you that you lovingly and laughingly created 
the otter and the eel, 
the hawk and the hippopotamus, 
roses and orchids, 
blacked-eyed Susans and black-eyed peas.

Thank you that you delivered Israel out of Egypt 
and me out of sin and condemnation.
Thank you that you made me whole 
and gave me new life and fellowship with you, amen.
