We are grateful today Our Father that
In the beginning You created the heavens and the earth.
and we are continually reminded that
[You say] to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’ and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’
and we acknowledge that even in the cold brightness of winter
[you know] how we are formed, [You] remembers that we are dust.
Yet we are grateful (at times) from the brilliant while beauty of the snow
and that life, even in the season of winter has a purpose under heaven.
So with gratitude we express thanks for the beauty of the earth and reminders that other seasons of seasons and life are yet to come.
