we thank You for the changing seasons,
for autumn, and all our harvest gifts.
As the days grow shorter
each of these gifts reminds us of Your promise of love.
For in all we eat and drink
You help us to grow,
to make plans
and enjoy our world.
Help us to celebrate
all the good things we eat,
and all that we have enjoyed this year.
When we think back on the spring and summer
may we remember the times of fun and laughter.
When we have made mistakes
remind us to sorry,
and to learn a new way to live,
as we follow Jesus in all we say and do.
