I am thankful to God for my being, which He has given me and by which He sustains me every moment of my existence. I am, because I am His.

I am thankful to God for revealing and giving Himself to me in Jesus Christ, who became man to reveal the mystery of God's love, and to communicate that love in the Holy Spirit. There is A MAN, a real man, who lived and died and lives forever--a man of flesh and blood--a man who is GOD. God shared my humanity, my frailty, my suffering. God came to dwell with me. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for being in my life, for becoming my companion.

I am thankful to God for everything, because I believe that everything that happens in my life is the gift of His wisdom and love by which He calls me to Himself--to a life beyond anything I can imagine or conceive. I am thankful to You, O Lord, for life and for the vocation to eternal glory.
