My Blessing, My Thoughts

Sometimes, when I awaken in the morning, I am too tired or in too much pain to say my prayers. But I still say them. I thank God for another beautiful day that He gives me here on this earth because, any day, I might be going home to my eternal life.

When I sit alone with my thoughts, He comes very strong after I pray. I do not know how or when they will come to me but I always thank God for them blessings, even when I am selling my Street Sense papers.

When I was growing up, my father always taught us how to pray, especially before we would go to bed. I really miss him. May he rest in peace. As I get older, I love praying a lot more. It has kept me strong in my faith. It also makes me stronger to go to church and praise God.

My mother and father raised us right and made sure we had food to eat, clothes on our bodies and a roof over our heads. I try to follow everything my parents taught me, especially to have respect for others. Even though I have been through a lot of ups and downs, including long periods of homelessness, I praise and thank God for the strength to lead me through those times. So, always keep your trust in God. Amen.
