Day 46: I am thankful for people who truly listen when someone needs an ear to hear them. At times we all need a sounding board for our thoughts and feelings. It isn’t necessarily that we are looking for an answer or even for someone to agree with us. God listens to us and even desires that we talk to him. He already knows everything, but the mere act of voicing these thoughts and feelings brings clarity to the situation. I don’t believe he expects us to simply accept things, but I do believe he understands when we are angry, hurt, and confused. I believe he enjoys our conversations with him and the deeper our relationship grows we understand more about his plan for us. Thank you, Father God, for giving us the opportunity to walk closer with you. Help me to be still and listen to your voice.
Day 47: I am thankful for my precious daughter, Heather Guest Dawkins! God gave her dad and me the greatest gift! She has been an amazing inspiration to me throughout her life. She supports me even when I am wrong, and she forgives all my mistakes. Especially since her dad died, she and her brothers and sister have showered me with love, attention, and kindness! They will never fully understand how much that has meant to me! Happy Birthday, Heather! Praying God continues to Bless you for many more years! Thank you Father God for knowing and giving me exactly what I needed!
