Dear Lord,

I thank you every day for the gift of life.

Every morning when I wake up, I know it is a gift. I wake up knowing that you have bestowed upon me another day. The day is not guaranteed, but you have given me something to look forward to.

When I close my eyes to sleep at night, I am thankful that was able to live through another day.

Each and every day is a gift from You, and I know that it is something that I cannot take for granted.

Regardless of good or bad days, hot or cold, I am going to appreciate the different turns in my life–because I am able to experience it.

This holiday season, I will pray for the families who lost someone close and dear to them.

I will pray that you will help and guide them through their grief.

Also Lord, I will pray that you will continue to remind us of our goals–Your goals for us on this earth.
