Dear God,
There have been people you put into our lives, to which we are so honored to have.
There are many blessings you give us, to which we are speechless.
There are prayers you answered, to which we are grateful.
There are things you have done that we didn't even notice, to which we are relieved.
God, we're just sheep--moving in one direction, but at different paces.
But you kept pace with all of us, making sure we made it back.
We may have fallen behind or fallen down, but you never let us give up.
We may have caused another lamb to fall, or followed one down the wrong path,
but you always put both lambs back in the right direction.
God, we aren't bad sheep, we're just dependent. And we need you.
This tribute's for you.
Beyond words,
one of the flock
