Thanks For Putting Up With Me

          Dear God,
          I'm writing to say I'm sorry
          For being angry yesterday
          When you seemed to ignore my prayer
          And things didn't go my way

          First, my car broke down
          I was very late for work
          But I missed that awful accident
          Was that your handiwork?

          I found a house I loved
          But others got there first
          I was angry, then relieved
          When I heard the pipes had burst!

          Yesterday, I found the perfect dress
          But the color was too pale
          Today, I found the dress in red
          Would you believe, it was on sale!

          I know you're watching over me
          And I'm feeling truly blessed
          For no matter what I pray for
          You always know what's best!

          I have this circle of E-mail friends,
          Who mean the world to me;
          Some days I "send" and "send",
          At other times, I let them be.

          When I see each name download,
          And view the message they've sent;
          I know they've thought of me that day,
          And "well wishes" were their intent.

          I am so blessed to have these friends,
          With whom I've grown so close;
          So this little poem I dedicate to them,
          Because to me they are the "Most"!

          So to you, my friends, I would like to say,
          Thank you for being a part;
          Of all my daily contacts,
          This comes right from my heart.

          God bless you all is my prayer today,
          I'm honored to call you "friend";
          I pray the Lord will keep you safe,
          Until we write again.
