Life is a gift!

A simple prayer which came from a grateful heart during Adoration as I spent the last hours of my birthday with my Spouse before the Blessed Sacrament:

For the gift of life, I praise you Lord.
For the gift of family, I bless you Lord.
For the gift of community, I thank you Lord.
For the gift of friends, I glorify you.
For the gift of another year, I stand in awe at your grace.
For the gift of this day, I magnify you.
For the gift of faith, I adore you.
For the gift of experience, I stand surprised.
For the gift of pain, I stand before you purified.
For the gift of love, I strive to love you in return.
For the gift of hope, I look to the future.
For the gift of trust, I walk a slow steady journey.
For the gift of being simply 'Louise', thank you Lord.
