Lord I Thank You

Updated on January 17, 2017

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
