Grace and Blessings

Dear Lord,
I have not been very good at finding grace in the everyday events of life, but I am learning; learning to be thankful, learning to keep my eyes open, learning to let go and be grateful for what You have given me. Thank you, Lord, for what is in my own backyard, for what is down the road and around the corner, and for the places You have taken me that are out of the ordinary for me. I am blessed. May I be a blessing to others every day, to remember to be grateful, and to thank You for every gift You give.

Prayers added for all those affected by the devastating earthquake in Japan, the ensuing tsunamis, and fires. My daughter was in Tokyo just over a week ago. Thank you, Lord, for bringing her home safe.
