“Who do you say that I am?”
You are the constant Presence in my life.
Ever since I became aware of the world around me,
I knew and felt you were always beside me:
guiding, leading, inspiring, and often just being there.
I have always felt that my life was led and guided.
You were he who did.
You are the Love that has suffused my life.
Love has cured my color blindness to see the colors of life.
Love has given me a heart of flesh to feel and embrace others.
When I was down, love helped me get up.
And when I was in love I was on the up and up:
in sickness and in health, for richer and for poorer.
Love got me going when the road was hard and difficult.
You are the Light that brightened my days.
You dispelled the darkness our of my life.
You have given me light to see and understand many things.
It was your light that brought me to where I am today.
Through your light, I have seen many things I would otherwise have missed.
You are the one Person who truly understands and love me.
Because of you, I am. Here.
And because I am, everything and anything is possible.
Yes, it is from you, o Lord, that I have received this great gift of Life.
