Thank You, Lord

Dear Jesus,

Thank You for this day of life.  Thank You for this night to sleep.  Thank You that I can be warm and dry and clean.  Thank You for all the variations in my life that make it interesting.  Thank You for the times I have felt safe and loved and happy.  Thank You for the times I haven't.

Give me the wisdom, the strength and the courage to use my gifts to bring forth Your Kingdom on the earth.

Your beloved daughter,

Mary

(I had noticed how the art of the thank you note especially for wedding gifts has largely been ignored these days.  I realized that I sometimes feel disappointed, or am left wondering whether the gift was received.  I decided that I would use Thursdays to thank the Lord for my gifts.)
