Thank You for Moms, give them steady hands as they guide their children: Dawn comes to mind, as do Others. Collectively, all us gathered here come now casting our many cares upon You; thank You for receiving them; thank You for answering, ABBA. And, HOLY SPIRIT, thank You so much for Your nudges; Yes, we welcome Your conviction and correction; we do not want to take Your blessings or Your Love for granted; we do not want to live our lives sloppily; so we lay open our hearts for inspection and thank You for making us worthy vessels in Your Kingdom work. We praise You now for what You are bringing to be.
