Thank You Lord

Thank You Lord

I woke early this morning

with memories of the past

dancing before my eyes.

My carefree childhood,

exploring life for

the first time.

Teen years

with questions and answers

to where I was going.

My wedding day,

the happiest day of my life.

Holding each of my

seven children

for the first time

when they were born.

Happy memories of being

a busy wife and mother, but...

praying for some time alone

to rest.

Also some somber memories

of the death of loved ones.

My father, mother , oldest sister,

favorite aunt and most of all

my husband.

I realize I wasn't alone

in my life,  Lord,

You were there beside me

to bring me through.

You have always been

there for me and You still

are. Thank You, Lord.

I couldn't do it without You!

"In this world you will have trouble.

But take heart! I have overcome the world."

(John 16:33)
