"Those who become Christians become new persons.
They are not the same anymore, for the old life is
gone. A new life has begun." (2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT)
Father God, continue to support my limbs, my mind
and my attitude about life. Let me have discernment
that I may remember my grandchildren, my family
and view those pictures with a smile, in spite of nasty
past distractions. Let me wheel my chair in happiness
across sidewalks, push a grocery cart with glee, walk
in surety and above all greet strangers with good
thoughts. My life has not been a bed of roses, yet You
were always with me, and I thank you for the times
Your shoulders carried this person, ungrateful in difficult
moments, unforgiving during weak episodes, but
returning to your fold with vigor. May my remaining
days on this earth you created be filled with a
continuing love I have in my heart for all, that I may
dance to the tune of your salvation, forever and ever.
