I don't know if there is a God or not. I would like to believe there is. I know that when I give thanks, I hope that He is listening, and that I'm not just talking to myself. It gives me joy to think that there is a God and that He hears my prayers of gratitude.
That is one of the reasons I hope there is a God. So that He can hear my prayers. I just wish somehow He would acknowledge me. And if there is a God, I believe He loves me.
