Thank you, God, for creating me, for making me the person I am. Thank you for my gifts. Thank you for making me capable of giving and receiving love and caring.
Thank you, God, for the loved ones You've given me, even if relationships have ended or others have gone to live with You. Each person has been in my life for a reason, even if only You know the reason. Each has formed me, shaped me, into who I am today. Some who seem to be my "crosses" in reality are developing my patience, deepening my compassion.
Thank you, God, that You are with me every moment of every day. I exist because I am in Your thoughts! Beside me, before me, behind me, above me, within me, You surround me, infuse me, with Your tremendous love and strength. I can do all things, go through all things, because of Your never-failing Presence and Love. Amen.
