Today is the final day of 30 Days of Thankful and I have saved the most important, the very best, for last... I am thankful for faith. It is the essence of who I am, the core of all I believe, the basis for all gratitude, and without doubt the reason that I am here. The times in my life when I turned away from God were very dark times indeed, yet He was always there waiting for my return, and welcomed me home with immeasurable love. I walk in the light now, always - His light. Beyond the shadow of a doubt, I believe. Faith... the most precious gift of all.
