1 Samuel 1.2
Peninnah had children; Hannah did not
thank you lord that you love us not because of what we have or what we don't have, you grant us favour not because of what we do or what we don't do - you love us because you are good! you redeem us, you forgive us out of your capacity, your riches, your generosity. you bless us out of your character, you love us because you, yourself, are love. wow, lord. thank you that we get to follow you, we get serve you, we get to have you as master, we get to walk with you as friend, the creator of the whole universe and beyond. thank you lord that you don't deal with us based on our own worth but on the great value you wrote into our lives. thank you, thank you, lord, praise you!
