For the Grace to Praise You

Abba, Father, Mighty God, Adonai, I praise you: for the grace to praise you. I praise you: for the symphony of seasons, four movements, winterspringsummerfall. I praise you: for the marvelous variety of tastes you've placed in this world, grapes, apples, bread, potato, cheese, milk, asparagus, peas, egg yolk and white, chocolate, coffee, salt and pepper, beef and chicken, pork and fish, cinnamon, sugar, and so much more. I praise you: for your endless creativity, your awesome majesty, your thundering power, your gentle caresses, your incredible patience, your immeasurable condescension to listen to me praise you.
