Thank You for this day that You created just for me through Your grace and mercy. Heavenly Father, thank You for my returning to Your Internet ministry after Your duties for me to minister to the living and the deceased family and eulogy with burial. Thank You for "chosen" me to Your ministry and I chose to become Your bond-servant. Bless all that this ministry reaches and that look forward to reading it for their spiritual food for knowledge, faith, spiritual daily living in the name of Jesus. In Jesus' name. Amen.
