Treasure Island

Eldon M Thomas

(03-21-1980 / Georgetown, Guyana)



Lord Jesus I thank you for allowing me to see twenty-eight years
Twenty-eight years of mercy and not of fear

Twenty-eight years of divine grace
Thank you for allowing me to seek your face

Thank you for allowing me to taste
To touch
To feel to enjoy

Thank you for life itself
Thank you for supernatural health
Thank you for provision from your eternal wealth

Thank you for your gifts
That you would see fit
To cleanse my lips with your finger tips

Thank you for being the captain of my ship
Thank you for leading me and guiding me along the way
Thank you for rainy and sunny days

Thank you for leading me through troubled waters
Thank you that you have blessed me to one day marry one of your daughters

Thank you for constantly freeing me form the power of sin
Thank you for being my King
Thank you Lord for dwelling within

Thank you for dying on the cross
Thank you for carrying my burdens that you did bear

Thank you for drying up my tears
And for being there for me even in my nightmares

Thank you for wonderful dreams
Thank you for delivering me from dangers seen and unseen

Thank you for divine healing
Thank you for being the only person in this universe that understands and knows how I’m feeling

I thank you again for life
And for showing me my wife

Thank you for allowing me to properly breathe
Thank you for supplying all my needs
From your riches in glory by Christ Jesus indeed
And for showing me how to sow good seeds

Thank you for your spirit
I am no longer timid
I am now bold
Thank you Lord for allowing me to live to be twenty-eight years old

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
