Lord, help me love like You love!

I’m grateful to the Lord for dying for me on the cross to give me peace and new life! I appreciate Jesus for all He's done for me; how He became man to feel the way I feel and allow me to know Him personally and to restore me to have hope, freedom, joy complete! I love to worship Him!

This past Thanksgiving was special and this song "Grateful For Your Love" kept playing over and over in my mind! The Lord wanted me to remember His words of truth!

It was a blessing to be able cook turkey dinner with my husband, see my son home from college, and spend time with my mom, aunt and brother in law. Life is precious and it's so worth loving our loved ones as Christ loves all of us, His beloved children!

After dinner my mother shared something I never knew before. She said she felt like she was a mistake child, as someone told her this.

She had a brother who was fourteen years older than her. He was a great athlete in high school, a recognized football player. When he was a senior in High School he enlisted in the Marines but then after he graduated he died of polio. She said he was like her second dad and she missed him.

I told mom that she wasn’t a mistake!!! I told her I appreciate her and If she weren’t born I wouldn’t be able to know her more and I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to bear my precious son! I’m so grateful for all my family and loved ones. I pray we learn to love ourselves as Christ loves us and stay thankful to the Lord for all the blessings! Psalm 139. Jeremiah 29:11

I hope you enjoy these lyrics and this song and thank the Lord for all His blessings.

I’m so grateful for the blood you shed, to bring me back to you Oh I’m grateful for your grace

Thank you for becoming man to feel and understand all that I face through my day

I pray to live my life for you fulfill all you tell me to sit at your feet and hear you

Oh I’m grateful for your grace
I’m so grateful for your word
I’m so grateful for the blood you shed, to bring me back to you

Thank you for allowing me to know You

You made my joy complete I belong to you!

Oh I’m grateful for your strength

I’m so grateful for your peace

I’m no longer lost when I look upon your cross

I remember your blood and the tears that you shed to save me!

I’m so grateful for your grace
