I thank you for letting me be alive today, for all the small things I can do. I thank you for your healing and now I ask that you carry me through my recovery.
I thank you for all the divine sparks you’ve given me and for the prayers and thoughts and the generosity and people. I thank you for taking away my fear of death, and for giving me hope.
I thank you for changing me and defining my purpose. I pray you will let me fulfill that purpose.
I thank you for my wife and children, friends and relatives and others who have come into my life. I thank you for my students who have shown so much love.
I thank you for Christmas and all it means. I never expected to be alive or even be here to see this day much less for Christmas.
I especially thank you for my two sons who’ve been a great inspiration to me and been a great help as well. Without them, I seriously doubt I would be here today.
I am so thankful for so many things, but these are some of the more specific things I wanted to thank you for. Thank you for the tender mercies of generous people, they have given so much and give me so much hope.
I guess most of all I thank you for giving me back my faith, something that I had let slide many many years ago. And now I pray for peace, love and understanding in this world, something we desperately need. I also pray that you let me be a part of achieving that goal.
Thank you for everything God and please send your love to all my divine sparks.
