Only thanks this day of my birth


Dear Lord,

I thank you for my life. I thank you for letting me see this day. I am so thankful. Even in my ingratitude, I am thankful.

You have been gracious to me. You have been merciful to me. You have blessed me and kept me and provided for me and loved me. Above all, Lord, you have loved me. YOU LOVE ME, that is my greatest strength. The biggest gift. The sweetest blessing.

You know my heart’s desire. You know it, better than anyone else. Between us there is no need for words. You look and Your All-Seeing eyes see into the depth of my soul. You see the tears that are hidden from others. You see the yearning that is imprinted in the most secret place of my heart.

You see the hunger. You see the thirst. You see the need. You see my want. You see me. And you know me and you know what I want, what I need.

I ask only one gift this day of my birth, let me hear that cry, Lord. Be merciful unto me and let me hear that cry. Let me feel it, bear it, hold it and be it.

Thank you for all things, yesterday, today and forever. And when all things is done here for me, humour me with a place in your Paradise *wink*
