Thank You Note


I've often envied those

who seem to have so much

of all the things we can

see and feel and touch.


I didn't see that

we too have so much

even though it's not the things

we see and feel and touch.


Needs provided.

Answered prayer.

Comfort given

for every care.

Children growing

to love the Lord.

Times to serve

and teach the Word.

Friendships made

along the way.

Knowing God's presence

every day.


So now I thank you, Lord,

ever so much,

for all You've given

that we cannot

see or feel or touch.
