Father, we thank You

The group Volunteers for the Lord remind us that we can be rich in spirit even when we are poor. I was moved as I listened to the words of thanks for God’s many blessings.

Many of us know the story about the man who was feeling miserable because he had no shoes. The man’s perspective changes when seeing a man with no feet. The man was no longer sorry for himself having no shoes. God’s blessings took on a different perspective.

In reflecting upon the blessings of enough food to eat, a beautiful home to live in and my wife, Karen, who loves me so deeply, I wrote this prayer poem.


Father, we thank You for Your love

The Holy Spirit sent from above

For hearing us when we call to You

For guiding us in all we do

For the power of a Savior’s love

For the symbol of peace in the dove

Peace for you and peace for me

For grace that sets us free

Hear our cries in the lonely night

Keep us all walking upright

Draw us to Your bleeding, wounded side

Let us in You our sins confide

We praise You in the morning’s sun

We’ll fight for You ’til our work is done

And when You call us to Heaven

We’ll thank You most of all for sins forgiven


About Dr. Kevin Osborne B.A., B.Th., M.A., M.Div., Psy.D., D.Sc., D.D.

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. Two years ago I completed my Doctorate in Psychology (Psy.D.) through St. James the Elder University. On Sept. 26th 2020, I graduated with a Master of Divinity degree from Canadian Christian Theological Seminary. These journeys were started over 20 years ago. In 1997 I received a Bachelor of Theology degree from Canada Christian College & Graduate School. Between working and studying it took 13 years to finish it. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
