For all the ones who wouldn’t give up on me
When I would have given up on myself…
For the ones who modeled patience
As they gave and gave me the gift of waiting…
Thank you for showing the sweetest of love.

For everyone who saw what I saw before I saw it –
The many changes I need to make in me…
For everyone who showed me grace
When they found me stuck in my own stubbornness…
Thank you for showing the sweetest of love.

For all the ones who gave me time
When time was all you had left to give…
For every expression of kindness that said
I’m a better man than I know myself to be…
Thank you for showing the sweetest of love.

For every time someone found me wallowing in shame
And freed my heart by resetting the score…
For everyone who saw me, not in terms of who I am at noon,
But who I will be at sunset…
Thank you for showing the sweetest of love.

For everyone who refused to play along
When I was acting like a spoiled child…
For every time you gave me strength to overcome
The greatest foe of all – myself…
Thank you for showing the sweetest of love.

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace… (Philippians 1:3-7 ESV)
