I Am Grateful For Life

I am so very grateful for life.

I am grateful for little things that make up life. I have suffered through life. I have learnt a lot in life. From birth to where I stand now—and beyond. 

I am grateful for the rain as well as the sunshine; the floods as well as the drought; the famine as well as the plentiful; the naked as well as the dressed; the downs as well as the ups; the weeds as well as the roses; crying as well as laughter; the frown as well as the smile.

I have experienced abuse, pain, agony, misuse, mistreating, teasing, and so much other suffering through the years. I have also survived two strokes. I have lived through things I could only dream of. No. I would never dream I could make it through what I have made it through. If I was asked, I would have sworn I would not survive. Yet I did. I did. I have. I will. I will survive.

All by the Grace of God.

December 21, 2010, I started reading my Bible. I haven’t stopped since. In fact, I do believe I have only missed a total of three days. Two of those days I was in the hospital. Now I even grab it when I see the need to go somewhere. I read from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21. Then I read it again and again and again. Every time I read it or reread it, I always find something new. This is why I am so thankful.

I am thankful I can praise my Heavenly Father daily. I don’t care what I face in life here on earth, I still sing God’s Praises. I praise Him for all my neighbors and friends. I praise Him for waking us up to fight this battle again. 

I am just so thankful for life.

The sun rises
The sun set
The moon shines bright

Lord forgive me
Don’t forget me

In the morning
At noon time
Late over in the night
