31 Letters to God | Day 1

31 Day Writing Challenge
Dear God,

How can I possibly begin to thank you for the big changes in my life in the last three months?! New state, new house, new grandbaby any day now! "Thank you" feels too small, too easily uttered without meaning. But today, this day, I wholeheartedly say "Thank you my God" for lavishing me with so much goodness this year. 

Yesterday I sat on the first step of our...swimming pool...and I listened to the trickling waterfall and the crazy jungle chorus of birds in the trees behind our house. I kept shaking my head in wonder...that this is my life now. How did this happen? I would never have imagined that moment 8 months ago. 

So today, this morning I look up into your skies and I say "Thank you my God!" Thank you for loving me the way you do. Thank you for being who you are in my life. Thank you for going to the Texas State Fair with us today, it's sure to be a blast and I will most likely be calling out to you a few times as we make our way through the crazy Dallas traffic! 

I love You,

  1. God is so good. I look forward to all you will share in these lovely letters to God. Love you!

    1. Love you too Dawn. Thanks for all of your encouragement!

  2. I can't wait to read these. I am not mentally savvy enough to try this mind is too cluttered with work and stuff to concentrate on anything new. So I will enjoy yours, and pray for you as you write your letters to God. Happy to see you "stretching" your self in doing this exercise. I know God will bless you and us in the process.

    1. Pam, you have a very full plate and a life full of interesting people and critters. No need to add a little writing challenge like this. I do not have much going on right now so this will be a fun exercise and a great way to get focused each morning. Love you!

  3. Looking forward to these letters! I just smile when I think of how God surprised you with De-LIGHT this year!
