ANNIVERSARY - July 28, 2008

Last Friday was our anniversary and I thought of all the milestones along our way. We never made a million dollars, but we made millions of friends and acquaintances along the way; we have cherished children; and both of us are blessed with wonderful families of origin. We never saw the Red Sea part, but we had miracles, designed just for us, that gathered around us, knee-deep, when we took the time to see them. We didn’t have our every prayer answered, praise the Lord, but He did answer every prayer that fulfilled His plan for us. Come to think of it, I guess we did see the red Sea part, as situation made way for even us to serve Him. Let’s pray:

“Our Father God, Heaven and earth are full of thee. May we each have a heart and eyes to see your presence here on earth. We come before the footstool of your thrown to ask that we may be blessed with the awareness of your revealed heart around us. Let us have a glimpse of your glory each day, not for our benefit but for your glorification, so that we might praise you even more. You are the ‘all-in-all” oh Father, the beginning and the end, and the rapture of our heart. Forgive us when we have said, “Your blessings have not been enough; I want more,” when we haven’t even acknowledged the blessings we have already received. Forgive us when we cry to you out of our loneliness, and fail to recognize the beautiful friends you have put in our path. Our loneliness isn’t physical, it is spiritual, for we keep ourselves from fully embracing you, our Father. Keep us close to you, even when we have drifted from your path. In the Holy, precious name of your son, our Savior, Jesus Christ we pray. Amen”
