Note to the Lord

Dear Heavenly Father:

On this Sunday, I wish to thank you for several things.

For the gift of entertaining both a sister-in-law and brother-in-law, for five precious days, I thank you.

For memory-making excursions, festive meals, laughter and tears shared with guests, I thank you.

For the gift of flowers from a friend, I thank you.

For an open house with family members and friends,  much abundance, food, music and happiness, I thank you.

For bright, sunny days and cool, lovely nights so perfect for sleeping, I thank you.

Today, Sunday, for rest and thinking back on such a perfect week, I thank you.

 For blogland and all the wonderful people I have been blessed to meet, I thank you.

 You are such a kind, loving and generous God. 

Your love for your children never ceases to amaze me. 

Love, Susan

Thank you also for sharing your many thanks to the Lord with us. God IS good isn't He?

While reading your list, you have much to be thankful for. Your notes to the Lord are beautiful in every way. I love grateful people, and you are one of them.

Your note to the Lord is full of blessings in your life and I thank Him every day for many gifts.
I am giving away a book on my blog today.

I really loved your note to the Lord and the beautiful pictures. I try to write gratitudes often and they are always to God as I owe him all.

We will welcome a brand new church this coming Saturday..had the last service in our old church today. The congregation wrote thank you and memory notes and left them in a big box next to the new church...I'm so thankful to belong to such a lovely parish. I'm thanking God each and every day of my life!
