Thanks for the Memories

Dear God,

Every single day of my life you give me a reason to give thanks.  Sometimes it’s easy to thank you when it’s something tangible or visible to the eye. 

Likewise Lord, it’s easy to become ungrateful when I can’t touch or see the things you do for me on a daily basis.  However, Father I’m learning more and more every day that there is just so much more to you than what my eyes can see and what my hands can touch.

Today Father, as I sat memories ran through my mind of family, friends, love, laughter and happy times.  The memories brought a smile to my face and the thought to my mind that memories are a precious blessing, something for which I should thank my father up above.

So today Lord I want to say, thank you for the memories. 

Thank you for memories from childhood that still bring a nostalgic smile to my face.

Thank you for memories of family who inspire me to always give you praise.

Thank you for memories of friends who encourage me along the way
Thank you Lord for the memories of those who have gone on and those present still.  I consider them all to be blessings in my life.

Lord again I say, thank you for memories.

Your daughter,


  1. Amen, sweet sister Bernadine. It is so true; we often forget the past blessings or things we cannot touch. Life is a roller-coaster ride, but there is always something to be thankful for :)

    Thank you for sharing from your heart.

    Love & peace,

  2. Oh Bernadine, this is a precious post. Gratitude is so important and in our busy lives we can get our eyes off what really matters. God's invisable hand in our lives. His will and purposes - are awesome!


Thank you for dropping by. Do leave a note so I can return the compliment.
