Day 7 - I'm Thankful for Life!

Strangely, I'm typing notes for this post while at a funeral. I had to sing at the funeral and it really hit me that life is short. One day you can be here today and the same day you can be gone. It's hard to bury a family member and/or friend, but that is part of life. So, this is where my title comes into play. Every day I'm able to wake up and see a new day, that's a blessing. I've had some hard times in life where it could have caused my life to end. But God! I've had somebody that have tried to harm me. But God! I've had thoughts about taking my own life because of trials and tribulations. But God! I have been blessed to see 34 years of life and I'm truly thankful for that. I could have been gone a long time ago.
My name in my sorority is "God's Gift". I don't take that lightly. It's a blessing to have that name and title because of my life situations. I now know that God has more in store for me to do His work and that's what I'm going to do. I have lost friends and family members because of the path that God has for me. It is not in His plan for them to be with me, but I have learned from the ones that have come and gone.
Each day I try to live my life to fullest. It gets hard. It gets difficult. I cry. I hurt. It's part of life, but I'm thankful to experience that. It only makes me stronger and wiser. God still allows me the health and strength to take of myself, my family, and others I care for. I don't take it lightly. Life is precious. We don't have control of our lives, that's God's business. But in order for us to allow God to help us, we have to help Him help us. I'm not perfect and I mess up. Who doesn't? But I give honor to God daily and I thank Him thru out the day. At any moment, my life can end. But while I'm alive, I will take in each second of it. So, I'm going to make the best of my life. Each day is a new page to my book called LIFE!
So overall, I'm thankful for my life!!
