You are the One

Thanksgiving is possible only for those who take time to remember; no one can give thanks who has a short memory. 


        ~ Author Unknown
 
Every time I think of you—and I think of you often!—I thank God for your lives of free and open access to God, given by Jesus. There’s no end to what has happened in you—it’s beyond speech, beyond knowledge. The evidence of Christ has been clearly verified in your lives.
 
     ~ 1 Corinthians 1:4-5
 
You are the bounty in the Cornucopia.
You are the one who takes time when you are too tired to write a response.
You are the one who prays because you have heard the Spirit, 
You are the one who came back to say thanks,
You are the one who holds the line,
     who stands up for the abused,
     who comforts the sick,
     who sees past the veneer.
You are the one who has loved across centuries.
You are the one who reminds me what I taught you.
You are the one who taught me how to deal with the bullies 
      because your name made you the object.
You are the one who saved a small dog.
You are the one who sewed a costume when I was sick.
You are the one whose child, (whose children) has been my friend.
You are the one whose mere glance across the sanctuary warms my heart.
You are the one whose shoulder was soggy because of a well aimed barb.
You are the one who makes sure to say hello on each brief encounter while you are rushing to work.
You are the face of Jesus, every time I see you..
You are the one who is reading this right now.
And I thank God for you.
Because of Him
