I’m so incredibly fortunate to have a wife like Julie and Seth and Caroline. I know I complain occasionally but to just to have the opportunity of being in the car with them for hours, go on a scavenger hunt to find a Five Guys to make her happy, to go look at an iPhone or get plants for a fish tank, go to a birthday party for my wife, to be able to kiss my daughter and wife and call them beautiful…. I feel and am so incredibly fortunate.
Once I was lost and alone. But I had a dream. I had a dream to have a family. You found me, You brought me out of a life that had no hope, and You fulfilled my dreams. You gave me purpose and meaning. You gave me a beautiful wife and two beautiful children. Lord, may I NEVER take them for granted or anything You’ve done for me.
I know countless men and women who do not have what I have. Lord, I pray for my brothers and sisters in and out of You. May You fulfill them in Yourself. May they be filled with You and Your plan for their lives, as You have and are with me. May we all be content with You and be thankful for You and the knowledge that You have and will provide. For those outside, I pray that those of us in You would live lives that would draw others to You. That we would glow with Your radiance. As I once wondered what some had that I didn’t. May no one have to wonder, may they KNOW that I have You and they too can have You and a fulfilled life in You.
Come what may, may I always focus on what I have and not on what I don’t have. Lord, You are my all in all.
I love You!! MG
