Have you thanked the sun today? How else have you expressed gratitude and sought God? 

ThankYouSun

Hello Sun,

I want to thank you

—for the light you provide for us every day and even at night, in reflection

—for your warmth which we feel though light years away

—for teaching us to shine to be the light for others and show the best of ourselves

—for lasting endurance you are a constant

through change

in the weather

in the ether

in yourself

in us 

look upon your sprawling panoramas in awe

thankful, hopeful, for your bountiful, beautiful way

-Ernio Hernandez
