In Gratitude, Oh Lord

Village of Monte Castillo 

In gratitude, oh Lord, For the eternal smiles of the poor, the eyes of God, giving back so much more, than we could ever deliver.

Thanks Be To God.

In gratitude, oh Lord, for the humility brought forth, serving in the sands of Piura, where time stands still in your merciful love.

Thanks Be To God.

In gratitude, oh Lord, for our Catholic faith, calling us, exulting us to serve with Padre Joe, Mother Theresa right beside us.

Thanks Be To God.

In gratitude, oh Lord, for your peace and grace, as we face our own frailties, oh the dirt floors and empty kitchens, living brief, but eternal moments with your poor.

Thanks Be To God.

In gratitude, oh Lord, for your joyous revelation, we feel at home here in your midst living out Your will for us, Holy Spirit taking over.

Thanks Be To God.

In gratitude, oh Lord, because most of all, we are not alone, for You have blessed us with each other to share and rejoice the love you revealed in Piura.

Thanks Be To God.

Written by Bret Beegle. He gave me permission to share his writing. Truly a movement of his heart by the Holy Spirit as I think it perfectly captures the experience and gratitude one comes to feel and know after missioning here in Piura, Peru.

Honoured to call him a friend.
