I received the gift of grace, of love, of faith, of forgiveness, of salvation.
I received the ability to see everyone around me with love and compassion; the ability to have joy for others happiness regardless of my own state.
I received adoption into God's own family, and along with my Brother Jesus, can cry out "Abba" to my heavenly Father, as well as pray along with our Blessed Mother Mary.
I received the knowledge that the God of the universe would rather spend three days in hell, than one day in Heaven without this silly, so incredibly undeserving, ex-long hair'd Baltimore boy.
That God is madly, passionately, in love with me!!!! (and you too!)
I am happy for the trucker from Georgia,
but wake everyday knowing I won the more valuable prize.
Thank you Jesus!
