There are days when the only way to start the day is with gratitude and praise. So, given that fact, I am going to just praise my God here, using attributes and actions that are on my God List. God, you create a shelter and shade in the heat of the day–you are a refuge and hiding place from the storms and rains of life. Thank you that this is so. You are seated on your throne, high and exalted. Your train, O God, fills the Heavenly temple....
