THANK YOU, GOD.

Every Day should be A THANKFUL DAY and TODAY--I’M THANKFUL FOR:    

 1. Forgiveness. In my lifetime, I have taken some wrong turns, acted impulsively, and experienced more than enough mistakes. Through prayer, I have felt God's love and experienced his forgiveness. He has also taught me to forgive myself, the most difficult task of all.

2. My skate key. The skates disappeared a very long time ago but I still have the skate key in my jewelry box. Long ago, I remember wearing the valuable key around my neck on a multi-colored ribbon. I learned to keep it close---and-- even sleep with it. No key--No skating!

3. Curiosity.   Regardless of age, I must keep---wondering, investigating situations, and searching endless possibilities –to keep expanding my life. Everyday has been more-interesting since I learned to examine the world through curious eyes. In some cases, when I've been so--- insatiably-curious that I couldn't-stop-digging---deeper and deeper ---I found myself in China.  I'm sure it was part of your plan and--   I'll always be grateful to you, God, for making it happen.

Dear Lord and Father of mankind--- forgive my foolish ways. Make me more aware of life's beauty and keep me forever- curious about your wonderful world. Restore my interest in simple joys; keep the child inside me----alive and well---continue to guide and direct my path and--- help my heart hold- fast to the simple sweetness of younger days.
