Oh Lord, thank You for my parents. They have been so wonderful in my life, even though I am still saddened that both my mom and dad have now passed on to the grave. This life is so short, God. We are here one day and gone the next it seems. My brothers and sisters have been key to me growing up to be the person I am today. Thank you for them. My wife is so wonderful and I am grateful that You brought her into my life. She is such an awesome mother to my two daughters. Thank You, Lord, for her and my children. I am so blessed to have this family. Each one of my kids has their own unique talents that You have given them. Thank You, God. I’ve built some wonderful friendships in the faith, and I am grateful for their good influences in my life. Thank You for my job at work. I have a wonderful boss and co-workers. All this I give you thank for, but most especially for giving me hope, Your love, Your many blessings, Your goodness, always being there for me through the Holy Spirit, my salvation, Your protection, Your mercy, Your forgiveness and others also, Your grace, and always listening to my prayers. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
