Dear Gratitude

Dear Gratitude,

When worry steals my peace and joy,

               please Gratitude, remind me of my many blessings.

When I am trapped in by resentment and fear,

                Gratitude, set me free.

When depression surrounds me on all sides,

                please, help me see the light peaking through.

When I am holding tightly to my own rigid ways,

                Gratitude, help me to adapt to another’s needs and wants.

When bitterness is clutching my cold, hardened heart,

                 Gratitude, please soften it with your touch.

When it seems nothing in life has gone my way,

                 Gratitude, help me to see all that has gone right.

When my stubborn anger refuses to forgive,

                 please Gratitude, show me the way.

When someone has hurt me,

                   Gratitude please, let compassion heal that wound and bring me to a new day.

When pain wracks my body,

                    please Gratitude, help me to remember, the good things in my life each day.

When life with it’s twists and turns, doesn’t go as expected,

                    guide me in your ways, oh Gratitude, lead me always.

I pray you all have a blessed Thanksgiving and are able to get through any hard times in your lives by holding tight to gratitude for the good.
