An Attitude of Gratitude

After watching General Conference I couldn't help but feel very grateful for all the blessings in my life. I wrote this poem a while ago but I thought I would post it since it describes many of the things I'm grateful for.
Made For Me

Behold the heavens Thy hands hath made

Deep is the valley Thou freely gave

On top the mountain, Beneath the sea

For these I’m grateful Thou made for me

To see a rainbow in its array

And bask in twilight near the end of day

The shooting star, For every tree

For these I’m grateful Thou made for me

For every sunrise that starts the day

And every river that’s carved its way

For every flower and every bee

Of these I’m grateful Thou made for me

The sound of music that fills the air

The deepest of love that we share

For healing, forgiveness, and eyes to see

Of these I'm grateful Thou made for me

I love your poetry. You have an amazing gift to be able to share with other in this way. Wasn't conference good! I loved the talk on gratitude also.
