The more we express our gratitude to God for our blessings, the more he will bring to our mind other blessings. The more we are aware of to be grateful for, the happier we become.– – Ezra Taft Benson

Today God, just wanted to stop and say thank you.  You are my all in all and I adore YOU!  Lead me this day, my Lord, my savior, thy will be done.  Shower me with your love, health, mercy and grace.  Be with those I love and those around me.  I give thanks to you, my God, for all the blessings of yesterday, the provisions of today, and Your plans for my future. Forgive me, for we (You and I) know I am sinful.  Place within me your Spirit of forgiveness and grace for others.  Keep me warm, safe and deliver me from evil this day.  For you are my bright Morning Star, your kingdom is forever, you are the Fountain of Living Waters and I raise my gratitude to You.  In Jesus holy name I pray.  In love and light, Amen, So be it…LGD
