Thanksgiving Prayer

O God. My cup overflows. I have so much to give thanks for. Thanks is not enough. You, my faithful God have always taken care of me. You have always been true to never leave me or forsake me. You have given me an incredible godly husband who loves you and leads me. O God, that is more than I could ask or imagine. If you have asked me in highschool if I would be blessed to be married to such an incredible man, I would have said no way. God you have blessed me with a son. You have allowed me to stay home with him. You have given me opportunity to pour into him. You have blessed us with an incredible church family which we prayed for. You allow Todd to do ministry for a living. You have given me health. I have an amazing mom and dad. My mom is one of my best friends. You give me a dad who continually and always has modeled you, God my Father. You loved me enough to give me a twin sis, an instant and forever friend. a sis in law who loves you, and I love. A mother in law I love to death. O God my cup overflows.God you are faithful to meet with me every morning. You have blessed me with a mentor. You have put people in my life to help me grow up in faith. You have shown me incredible mercy. You have been my faithful friend, my refiners fire. My strength. My wisdom. You are soverign. Most of all, Jesus you are firstborn from the dead. Because of this you should have firstplace in everything. i love you!

Michelle, Todd, and precious little "Dude" Alex, I am so glad y'all stayed with us while you were here for Thanksgiving. We all had a very blessed day and I am so thankful for all of my family and our health, especially my almost 85-year-old Daddy! He's amazing, isn't he? He's so sweet, and I just love him to pieces! I loved, loved, loved playing with my precious little great-nephew. He is such a little doll! We shared some very special secrets while y'all were here, and we are not tellin'! He did tell me he wanted to stay, but you and Todd just wouldn't let him. (Pout) Anyway, I can't wait for y'all to come back in a month. It'll be so much fun to see how much he's changed. I hope y'all made it safely to Sandra's and that you had a good time. I love all of you very much!

Love,
Aunt Brenda (Bena)

Michelle I am very thankful for you! God blessed us with not one but two awesome girls going on 27 years ago. You and Todd have blessed us with a precious grandson who I love very much and he loves his Grammie too. I thank God for you and the wonderful young lady you are. You are a good Mommy to our wonderful little Alex. I love you!!!!
