Dear Father, I am here today, well, alive and safe. And so are my family and friends. This continued safety is all because of You. Indeed, troubles may lay ahead, just as there are troubles right now. In this broken world, that is something that will not go away. In this imperfect life, one must expect such troubles to come. But, oh God, I can smile, knowing that You are there. This world is in turmoil, but I will put my trust in Your plans, I will trust in You. Amen.
