Praise be to you, O Lord,
for life and for my intense desire to live;
Praise be to you for the mystery of love
and for my intense desire to be a lover;
Praise be to you for this day
and another chance to live and love.
Undamn me Lord,
that praise may flow more easily from me than wants,
thanks more readily than complaints.
Praise be to you, Lord, for life;
praise be to you for another chance to live.
Text from Ted Loder's book, Guerillas of Faith.
Photo of lovers in Paris, France, on a sunny day in April.
God grant them, and us, the ability to love every day.
