‘What return can I make to the Lord for all he has given me?’
My child looks at me and smiles his first smile and I know in that instant I am blessed. How can I repay God? What can I offer him in thanks for his great goodness? He has looked at me with love and compassion and blessed me with life, the gift of children, of family.
How can I ever repay this generosity? My happiness and gratitude are overflowing. My spirit dances. I shall give God my time. A quiet prayer. A grateful pause. A moment of grace and thanksgiving in my daily life. A breath of pure praise. I lift up my spirit to God, for all that is good and lasting has come from him.
