I am thankful for my Father, God, who loves both himself and me so much that he made the ultimate sacrifice to send his son, Jesus, to earth as a human being who experienced all the same trials and tribulations I experience every day, yet remained sinless. He then endured the divine wrath of God the Father, a punishment which I deserved, through his death on the cross. But then he rose again three days later and continues to lead me every single day. Thank you God for your love! Thank you for never giving up on me! Thank you for continuing to mold me each and every day into the person you desire for me to be! Thank you for the privilege of working alongside you in your mission each and every day! Thank you for everything you have given me for which I am thankful!
