Writing 101, Day Fourteen: To Whom It May Concern | The Daily Post.

Dear God,

Thank you for letting me live another day; for the bright sunshine and the hope of something good happening.

Looking back on my life, I can see You have had a hand in it from day one.  You have given my parents, sisters, and family strength to cope with my pain before I was old enough to do so, and then You showed me ways to cope with it others hadn’t even thought of.  For these things I am grateful, and awed.  Now others come to me asking me how to cope with pain, and even though I am never sure how to answer them, or explain, You always give me the words.

Thank you for all the possibility of the future now before me.  You continue to show me the beauty of the world when I cannot see it alone.  You show me miracles when I am sure miracles don’t exist.  You show me the hope of what can be.  This keeps me going when all else seems to fail when I put my human brain to the task of looking and seeing.

Thank you for everything, and giving me the strength and the courage to go forward when I have reached rock bottom.
