Thank you Lord for placing me into the family, although they were not  rich and famous,  it was were I needed to be to become the person you wanted me to be. My Father for the discipline , my mother for her endless love until her last breath and my 5 brothers who cared so much for me.

Thank you Lord for my mind, body, and spirit, for how you made me, and for all that you put within me to grow and learn.

Thank you Lord for my church, my pastors, my ministry, my friends. Your love is made tangible through them.

Thank you Lord for I am now half way through life, a bit older and a bit more wiser but still with many challenges. Your mighty hands guided me through, and I knew that it was with your help that I was able to make it.

Thank you Lord for today as I humble myself and in tune my spirit to you. I am listening to hear from you, to receive direction as to your plans for me so I may carry them out.

Thank you Lord for the bright future you have ahead for me, and for the surprises you are bringing forth in my life.

Thank you Lord for new beginnings, restoration, revision, refreshment, and healing.
