Thank You For Blessing Me

July 9, 2010


Confession To God

Although you've blessed me
with a heart full of good intentions
I know there have been times
when I have disappointed you

At times I have acted selfishly
At times I have been judgmental
At times my pride got in the way
allowing precious moments to slip away
untouched by my sense of compassion

Thank you for blessing me
with a heart full of good intentions
and for the strength to recognize
I have received far more than I have given

I vow to try harder
to think before I speak harshly
to show my softer side more often
to share laughter and catch falling tears
to accept others for who they are
to live honestly and completely
to love myself and to make you proud of who I've become
