A Letter to God

If I wrote a letter to God today, it would read like this…

I am grateful for every moment of my life

In a world where there is murder, rape and violence, you keep me safe

In a world where people die of disease and starvation, you give me good health and food

In a world where thousands are unemployed, you give me work to do everyday

In a world where people are born handicapped, you have given me intelligence and a sound body

In a world where people are isolated, you have given me friends and family

In a world where there is arson and looting, you keep my loved ones safe

In a world where people are orphaned, where war ravages the land, you have shown me plenitude

In a world that is shaken by tremors and swallowed by tsunamis, you have held me in your arms

In a world of cheats and liars and tricksters, you have not let me lose my integrity

In a world of anger and hatred, violence and deception, I learned love and generosity

In a world where death cheats our dreams, I gave birth to life

In a world where there is ignorance, you gave me wisdom

In the darkest hours, you were my light

In the toughest trials, you stood by my side

In a world of despair, you taught me hope

In this world of turmoil, you gave me peace

In this world of tears, you still give me reasons to smile

I may not have everything, but I have enough

I have much to be thankful for

I am grateful for every moment of my life
