Thank you Lord

Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings.

Thank you, Lord that I can hear.

There are many who are deaf.


Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible.

Thank you, Lord that I can see. Many are blind.


Even though I huddle in my bed and put off rising.

Thank you, Lord that I have the strength to raise.
There are many who are bedridden.


Even though the first hour of my day is hectic,

when socks are lost, toast is burned, tempers are short, and my children are so loud.
Thank you, Lord, for my family...

There are many who are lonely.


Even though our breakfast table never looks like the picture in magazines

And the menu is at times unbalanced...
Thank you, Lord for the food we have.
There are many who are hungry.

Even though the routine of my job often is monotonous.

Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to work. There are many who have no job.
Even though I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day

And wish my circumstances were not so modest.
Thank you, Lord, for life.


For
friendship that is a gift.

A friend is someone who fills our lives with Beauty, Joy and Grace

And makes the world we live in a better and happier place!
Every day be thankful for what you have and who you are.

 

 

God bless you and yours
