Lord I Thank You

Lord I ask you for the motivation

And for the drive to succeed

I ask for your guidance

For my children will follow my lead

I ask you to bless our marriage,

Our family, our life

And never let him forget

How much I love being his wife

I thank you for the contentment I feel

With so many little things

And for letting him be there to wipe the tears

That life sometimes brings

I love the feeling of warmth when

The sun shines through the clouds of grey

I thank you for giving me my mother

For although she is gone, I feel her love everyday

Thank you for reminding me Lord

When life seems way too hard

That my heart just gets stronger

With each and every scar

Beautiful poem/prayer that touches the heart, renews the spirit and reveals a universal truth- that no matter what challenges we currently face in our lives we can be thankful for our many blessings and for our faith.

Voted up, beautiful, useful, awesome and interesting.
