Thanks for the Memories

RosesBy Stephen W. Hiemstra

Beloved father:

Thank you for placing godly friends in my life,

who share my pain and feel my sorrows

more than I even recall.

Thank you for giving me  a loving family,

who have always been with me

even when I was sick and irratible and no fun at all to be with.

Thank you for countless blessings,

which I mostly took for granted

like the legs that I walk on, the ears that I hear with, and the eyes that let me see.

In the power of your Holy Spirit,

help me to be more thankful,

to share other’s pains,

to be more loving, and

to share the many blessings.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
