Glory to God
With joy and appreciation, I praise God.
I may not be able to explain the many wonders of God I see, but I enthusiastically accept them. I notice countless expressions of divinity, both large and small, offering transformation as they extend out to others with love and giving. The joy in a child's face, a mother's embrace, or a friend's willingness to help all leave me overflowing with awe.
Not only these outer expressions but also my own inner feelings increase my awareness of Spirit. My inner peace expands and sweetens as I become more aware of God's ever-present love and guidance within me.
As joyfully as choirs of angels heralded the birth of the Christ child, I offer my praise as I proclaim "Glory to God."
"And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God ..., 'Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace.' " --Luke 2:13-14
