    Battered by the storms that blow.
    Bowing hard and oh so low.
    Heart sometimes aching as though
    it would break.
    I still thank him
    For keeping me safe!

    This has been a week of trial and
    triumph...each and every day
    But, I thank him anyway!

    Sometimes filled with anger at the
    way the world has become, so uncaring
    and unsharing sending pain through
    every family , drugs and death of children
    Powers that be that are corrupt and foul
    But every day I kneel and pray
    And I thank him anyway!

    This year has been full of trial and triumph
    sending me every which a way.
    New/old love came back to bless me.
    Illness and family tragedies came forth
    to test me.
    And each and every day
    I thank him anyway!

    Come closer he answers when ever I feel
    fear, that is the moment that the Creator
    is ever near...full of comforting energy
    to think he loves a wretch like me...
    And so I pray each and every day.
    And I thank him anyway!
