A Thanksgiving Prayer

A Thanksgiving Prayer

Dear God, You are so good to us and to me specifically. You are faithful and You have blessed me beyond measure. There are everyday blessings to which I have become accustomed, but I do not want to take them for granted: clean drinking water, electricity, fireplaces, more than enough food in my home, hot water, a beautiful home, and a comfortable, warm bed to sleep in.

Thank you especially for a new knee this year! It is making it so much easier to do the things I love & hands that help me to do so  many things. Thank you that even with the health challenges my family and our staff have faced and still face this year, you have been faithful and we are moving forward with hope.

Thank you for letting me listen to peoples hearts for my career.  Thank you for giving me a heart and courage for this work, and the ability to really ‘see’ them and stand with them in their pain and and all the precious souls I love.

Thank you for my family, my friends, and my neighbors.  Thank you for freedom to attend church and for my small group and my relationships.

Thank you for the things You are doing in my heart and in my life. I’m grateful that I am much different today than I was 5 years ago, or a year ago, or even a month ago; I am even different that I was at the beginning of this month, and it’s because of Your power at work in me, continually changing  me into Your image.

I am indeed so very grateful. Amen and Amen. Happy Thanksgiving and many blessings prayed for you today as well.  Blessings, Susie 💛🍁🍁💛
