Dear God,

A feeling of Thankfulness wells up in my

heart today. You have been so good to me with

blessings I’ve never deserved! My spouse, my

family and my faith – All these support me, and

surround me with good vibrations and positive


I know there are times when nearly every –

one experiences problems,  misunderstandings, or

doubts. But today my heart rejoices in the

flood of good gifts from Your hand.

Help me to realize these blessings each

Day – even when things seem to go the other way.

Through the eye of faith I will see Your hand

Directing my life through times of sunshine

and shadow.
