You are faithful, Lord. I have found you to be faithful in my life. I know that I know that I know that you keep your promises. I can look back and see the ways you have brought me to today. I would never have chosen or guessed the paths you chose, but I am grateful. I am thankful for the hurts...they brought me closer to you as I climbed up on your lap and let you comfort me. I am thankful for the laughter...I love the moments when I have laughed until I cried. Thank you for challenging me, growing me, loving me, saving me, buying me back, choosing me, calling me. Keep challenging me and calling me...I never want to miss what you have in mind for me because I'm scared or comfortable or buried so deep in "stuff" that I can't hear you. I love you, Father.
