Heavenly Father, we sometimes feel all alone in this world. We know that You are there with us, even in us by the Holy Spirit, but we are creatures of flesh. It does us good to see with our eyes and to touch with our hands. We thank You for the people who have shown us Your love in a concrete way. We thank You for our parents, for our friends, and for our colleagues. Most of all, Lord, we thank You for the family of God, for those strangers who have become our brothers and our sisters. Amen.
