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, black-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.
