A New Day - God Bless America

I begin each New Day by writing a thank you letter to God. I have done this for many years. I find it a beautiful positive way to start my day and it also allows me to have a personal relationship with Our Father.

In my letters I always give thanks for my loved ones, and for those that bring comfort and joy into my life.

As I sit in my bed writing and look around my room I see thousand and thousands of people that give their life's energy to bring comfort into my life.  No I really do... I mean who designed and built and marketed my bed, my sheets, my quilt, my house, the electric, I can go on for hours... can you see what I see?

Have you ever thought about the army of people that make it possible for you to enjoy all the comfort in your life.  So I always give thanks for them and the special people in my life that bring joy and love into my life. They are what I call my joy bugs and I love them all dearly. I also give thanks for our beautiful world and for the beautiful country that I am blessed to live in.

I finish each letter letting My Father know that I love him and that I desire to always please him and to always make him proud of me. I thank him for favoring me and I ask him to stay close to me as I travel through this new day and I promise to be joyful and to bring joy to all I touch. (This one is not always easy however I think it is a great goal and I am always conscious of striving to achieve my joy goals)

I am sorry to say that in all the years I have been writing my letters to God I have never thanked him for the thousands that have given their lives to make it possible for me to live in the land that I live in.

I am sorry to say that I have never done anything for these amazing men and women who fight for our freedom.

I am sorry to say that my heart has seldom gone out to the families that lost their loved one so that I may be free.

Moving forward that will no longer be the case...

Last night Rich and I saw the movie "Last Ounce Of Courage". If you value your freedom, if you love America, if you love your children and their children trust me when I say you owe it to yourself to see this movie and it does not matter what your political persuasions may be...

See "Last Ounce of Courage" and every day of your life thank God for those that gave their lives so that we may live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

 

May God Bless America.

I am going to post a clip that has emailed to me the other day. It will show how unique everyone is in their own right. It can only be by design.

I have always thanked our volunteer force for our freedoms. I don't know why, just something I have always done and felt was important.

Starting the day in a mindset of gratitude, being happy for what you have is an extremely powerful place to start your day from.
