O heavenly father, I want to thank-you
For keeping me safe today
For protecting my soul
From all of harm’s way.
For protecting my heart
Against sorrow and pain
For lifting my spirits
Showing I have much to gain.
Thank-you Lord for giving to me
The courage to stand the courage to be
Whom you have created so very unique
I have learned to you I must seek.
Big bad wolves come in fake colors
Trying to steal this soul you have made
I thank-you Lord, for allowing me to see
That I can shine bright, and just be me.
I am not perfect, and do make mistakes
I can hurt others unintentionally
But I get down on bended knee
Knowing that you will always forgive me.
Thank-you Lord for keeping me strong
To deal with sadness that comes my way
Thank-you for letting me share a piece of my heart
With whom ever comes in my day.
Now the time is coming near
That we celebrate the day you came
You took our sins and wiped them clean
I praise you God, I praise your name.

ohhhhhhhh bless your heart for these kind and warm thoughts Chris. hugs
warm thought?? I thought that was some pretty powerful v8’ish comment.lol, but I’ll take the hugs 🙂
it definitely was. I wasn’t sure how to tell you, being a guy, how much I loved it without saying something stupid and mushy. hehe. I hope God just realizes I did this not out of duty for Al, but because I love him. I can be a real softie, and a little mushy with my words, but believe me, I loved your remark!!!!!!!
