Writing thank yous on postcards to friends is my thang. It changes how I view my feeble little world and shifts my focus to how amazing the other person is. I remember the tiny ways they’ve touched my life, the hugs they gave, gifts they sent, and encouraging words they spoke over me.
Thanks is addictive, the best kind of drug.
So I’m pretending this page is a postcard, an index of my gratitude to God. I think true acceptance starts there, where we create and pen our thanks into being, just as he created us.
Hey, God, thanks for this journey to write out how much I need you—how I want to see you, experience you daily, all the way down to the bones in my toes.
God, my head knows you love me, and my heart is trying to get it.
Thanks for waking me up to my desperate need for you.
Thanks for making a way for me to escape myself and to live like I’m a pen in your hand as you write your love letter to the world.
