Thanksgiving Novena Day Two: Life and Time

“My life is but an instant, an hour that passes by; To love you, my dearest God, I only have today.”

– St. Therese of Lisieux

I am grateful to be alive, Lord.  I’m breathing.  Time passes quickly, and I forget that all life is gift from You Who are breathing me into life moment by moment.   Help me to be present in the sacrament of each moment – to where You are with me right now.   I am grateful to you for every moment of life You give me.
