It's Me Again

by Helena Frances

Dear God,

Okay, I've had my private pity party. Now I'm ready to try again to become the better me I'm intended to be. Thanks for your patience.

I've had a bunch of new thoughts and awarenesses after that dark time. I know that I have a unique purpose in life. You have given me many gifts, possibilities, and options, and when I ignore them I insult you. I'm sorry for that. I'll try to be more gracious and grateful, even when I'm afraid of taking action and stepping into the unknown.

I had a visual of standing in front of you when my life was over. (I didn't see any pearly gates, but there was a feeling of peace.) I was showing you what I had done in my life with what you had given me, and was handing back unused gifts, saying "Well, I didn't use these because I was focused on other people's lives -- the people I thought were more important than me." I then realized that I had wasted gifts meant only for me, and I was sorry.

I wonder how you remain constant in your love for me, despite the lack of appreciation you receive in return.

I wonder, and I feel blessed. Thank you.
