One day

Friday, June 21, 2013


It is a gift.

Let me see it as such, and appreciate it as such.

Let me not try to repaint it into what it is not.

Let me live it, and allow the feelings brought on by my will be washed over and processed in a healthy way. Let me be willing and able to be used for the purpose of my maker.

Thank you, Lord, for the abundance of clean, clear water available for me to drink, for not everyone has this.

Thank you, Lord, for the many healthy options for food to fuel my body. Help me choose wisely and without greed in their use today. For there are those who do not have enough.

Thank you, Lord, for the ability to move my body under its own power. Let me appreciate this and remember to take the moments to use my feet and legs to transport me where I need to go, and not just sit on my sit-upon!

Thank you, Lord, for a safe and comfy place to sleep.

There is so much to be grateful for, let me focus on that, and not on things that aren't going "my way". Give me the gift of acceptance of Your direction. And help me appreciate Your hand in all things.


Oh, yeah, sorry about that, Sparklies... prayin' my way through the start of the day. Spark on. LIFE is good. emoticon

    Beautiful prayer. And you are right. There are many who don't have enough and here we are working hard to make good choices and trying so hard to be satisfied with enough. - Wishing you well in all things - those things you have control of and especially those things you can't control. Hang in there, Barb. I think of you often, especially when I'm trying to walk faster on my run-walk-runs!! -Marsha
