Keep Me Real Lord!
Dear Lord, you have blessed me abundantly and yet I have the potential to forget those very blessings. Help me to live in awareness, in gratitude, in joy and in faith. Help me to bless those around me through my words, attitudes and actions.
Thank you that you made me with certain desires and interests. Help me to be true to who I am even as I love my mate and my children. Lord, help me to take you seriously and to maintain a sense of humor myself.
