I Want to Thank You

Share |
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank God for the many blessings that he has given me lately.

First I want to thank God for the lawyer in that little town in North Carolina who got the charges on the traffic citation that I received dismissed.

I want to thank God for getting MCAssist to pay the hefty charges that a certain rental company would have had me pay after the accident that I had in that small town in North Carolina. And Lord, thank you for getting that company to pay all those thousands of dollars. (You and I have already had a good session about this.)

Thank you God for my daughter who brings me joy and sunshine on a daily basis.

Thank you for my new friends who come from all parts of the world. (Now I know why I had that dream eight years ago about the people speaking Russian who showed me such love and acceptance. You do work in mysterious ways.) Thank you for my Brazilian friends who have showed me magnificent acceptance, concern, and compassion.

Thank you for that more-than-needed tax return money. Phewww! Lord, You are always right on time!

Thank you for sending me the jobs that I’ve needed to support me and my daughter. I always knew that you would provide for us.

Thank you for my parents who are always there with a net and/or reassuring encouragement when I need it.

Thank you for my family in North Carolina who have wrapped their arms around us, both figuratively and literally.

Thank you for that special lady in Lebanon, Tenn. who always has our back.

Thank you for my friend Cheryl the Pearl who will be my friend for LIFE.

Thank you for the very wise counselor that I have who continues to open my eyes when I see her.

Thank you for my new church family, for their smiles, teaching, and spiritual guidance. I’m especially grateful for what they mean to my daughter who looks forward to attending the children’s program each Sunday. (Thank you for my old church family who is still lifting us up in prayer. I know because I can feel it.)

And finally God, thank you for my sanity—which I’m more and more sure about with each sunrise.

Regina,
I've learned to thank God at least once a day. Many times I thank God several times a day because God has been my salvation through such treacherous times. God has shown me the light and sunshine among all the gloom. I have been embraced and lifted up!
Peace,
Alicia
