A Prayer

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!

When I stepped outside this morning, the crescent moon was shining low is the eastern sky and a bright star was even lower. Then the sky was streaked with beautiful pinks, and golds as the sun started to come up. God is Awesome!

Our staghorn fern is getting huge because of all the rain. It hangs down to the ground now, but weighs so much it can't be pulled up higher to the tree. It is really beautiful! The squirrels like to take the banana peels out of it that i drop in the top.

Because I felt puny yesterday, I never left the house..just stayed home and coughed, but, hopefully, the antibiotics will start showing up today and I will feel better. The Great Physician is at work!


Eternal Heavenly Father, we know that You are more eager to hear our prayers than we are to pray them, and more concerned to respond to them than we expect You to be, Forgive us now with that complete pardon that eases the troubled conscience and replaces its sharp torment with a permanent peace. This we ask that Your risen Son may be more alive among us.

-Bryan Jeffrey Leech (from Hymns for the Family of God)

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
