We rejoice and give thanks

Dear God,

We rejoice and give thanks for earthworms, bees, ladybirds and broody hens; for humans tending their gardens, talking to animals, cleaning their homes and singing to themselves; for the rising of the sap, the fragrance of growth, the invention of the wheelbarrow and the existence of the teapot, we give thanks. We celebrate and give thanks.

Amen.
(Michael Leunig, Australian cartoonist and a lovely, gentle man of enduring Christian faith)
