I am a very private person. I continuously think about many things, but rarely express my thoughts. I have deep and pondering thoughts about why or how can certain things happen to me and others in our community and world.
How can the homeless survive in harsh winter conditions?
How can people be cruel to animals, let alone other humans?
There are a few of the many things I do not understand.
I am grateful. I have the attitude that I am blessed. I am very thankful to God for making me the way I am. I am not perfect, but I am not totally helpless. I can control myself and my situation reasonably well.
I pray to God thanking him for my family who could have aborted me, they could have rejected me, but they did not. He gave me a great family. Maybe, I could not have survived birth or died as a young child. But, instead, he repeatedly gave me life. I am very graced and grateful for all my blessings and opportunities. I have tried to give my life to him in song, in chastity, in morals, in service, and in prayers of gratitude.
As believers, we can have peace and joy through prayer and gratitude. When we pray and give thanks to God, even when it's hard to, we are promised to be given grace, abundant blessings to trust in faith.
