In a situation like this, I should be praying. In every day life, I should be praying. Why does that not come to mind more often? It should be human instinct (in my opinion) to pray daily. Here is my prayer for today...
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you. Thank you for introducing me to the love of my life at age 18. Thank you for the qualities, morals and values that his parents instilled in him and my parents in me so that our marriage can work so beautifully. Thank you for blessing us with our wonderful and energetic, Claire. Thank you for blessing us with our laid-back, adorable Grace. And thank you for blessing us with our first son, Jacob Robert. Thank you for our health, jobs, housing, food, the list could go on and on.
Thank you for our family and friends. We are surrounded by Your love and we embrace it.
Thank you for blessing me with the most amazing dad for 28 years. I pray that he is at peace and enjoying his time with you. I have no doubt that he has brought so much light to heaven.
Please keep an eye on this beautiful boy and myself. We trust in You and this journey that we are on. Please give me strength to keep this boy healthy for 17 more days.
In Your Name We Pray, Amen.
