Dear Lord

Thank you for the beauty and contentedness that cushions our lives
Thank you for my husband and life partner, who is so good to me
Thank you for our families that are very important to us
Thank you for the dear people directed into our path to be friends
Thank you for our good health that allows us to be strong and active
Thank you for providing so many opportunities to enjoy your world
Thank you for the leisure we have after long work careers
Thank you for your patience in suffering my weaknesses
Life is good

Just one thing…
Dear Lord, please guide my mother to prepare for her surgery by helping her stop smoking.  Expect a battle of wills.  Please dispatch an angel to keep her under a wing while they shore up her heart.  We would love to have her here with us for a while longer.  Thank you.

Ἅγιος ὁ Θεός, Ἅγιος ἰσχυρός, Ἅγιος ἀθάνατος, ἐλέησον ἡμᾶς
Holy God, Holy Almighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy upon us.
