Let me paraphrase some famous words from Elizabeth Barrett Browning for today’s blog post.
Why do I thank you? Let me count the ways.
I thank You for the Son You sent,
Letting me my sins repent,
To live with You for countless future days.
I thank You for the godly wife
You found and sent to me
To have and hold and just to be
Companion for my life.
I thank You for the smiling face
My daughter gives to me
And for her sons, who number three,
And the love in me they place.
I thank you for prosperity,
Good health, and family—
For all that you have done for me
And all my family tree.
But most of all I thank you, Lord,
Just for being You—
For leading me in all I do
By Your Spirit and Your Word.
Guess you can tell poetry is not exactly my forte, but for some reason it just seemed like what God wanted from me today. I hope you found something to like about it.
What are you most thankful to God for?
If you abide in Me and My word abides in you, then you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.

I have always appreciated your poetry. This was another good poem. I am thankful for God, family, friends, good health, and nature.
Poetry may not be your strong point, but I love what you did with this one. I pray that God sends me a good man. Please say a prayer for me that He does.
Thank you, Carole. Sometimes we try so hard to find someone suitable to be a mate that we overlook someone He has sent us.
