I am thankful for waking today into the world which the Lord has made. I praise you, Lord. Let me walk today and share my joy in the day with others.
I am thankful for waking beside the man I love, and for my two sons, who taught me that love shared grows. I praise you Lord. Let me share my love with others I meet, today and every day, that God's love can increase in the world to bring the kingdom into being.
I am thankful for my parents who had the wisdom to raise me and let me go, to grow into the person I have become. I praise you, Lord. Let me know when to stand back and let others struggle and let others fail or rise so that they can become who they are.
I am thankful to those who welcomed my forefathers and mothers to this land of opportunity, when they were sore oppressed and escaping tyranny, persecution, oppression, enslavement, terror and the threat of death. Without they generous hospitality of those strangers, none of what I am now would be here to praise my Lord.
