Saturday, 3/28/09 - PRAYER & GRATITUDE

(No matter how little - I know God hears!)

"PRAYER & GRATITUDE"

I may be only one.
I may be only a minuscule piece of humanity.
My voice may be only the slightest whisper
in the universe.

BUT

I know that God hears me.
I pray.
I am grateful.

Thank you God that I can pray knowing that you hear me, you care, and you answer.

Thank you God for my faith that allows me to pray for Mr. Hubby-aroni, Elizabeth (a young woman with a 5 year old child who has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of kidney cancer), and Ryan (in a coma as a result of a car accident where the driver was his brother and was drunk).

I am forever grateful that I found my husband who shares my life with me and adds such texture, richness, and love to it.

I am grateful that God can bring order out of chaos, enlightenment out of confusion, and love out of all situations.

I am so grateful for the excellent health I have had all my life. Any health problems I've had have been, in the grand scheme of things, pretty minor.

I am so thankful and happy that my son who I have loved with every fiber of my being from the moment he was born and through all the years has found the woman he loves and that they will begin their married life together next Saturday.

I am so thankful for my beloved daughter who I have loved with all my heart from the moment she first drew breath and every moment since.

I am grateful for my sobriety and the God-given ability to freely pass on what I have so freely been given.

I am thankful for the tremendous love that is shared among recovering alcoholics and those recovering in Al-Anon both face to face and in the blogging community.

I pray that my spiritual connection with You will continue to grow to benefit me and all those You may bring into my life to help.

Thank you for the peace, serenity, and balance I have found in my life.
