A Prayer Today






butterfly on a hammock, the letters in november
to watch a butterfly flap its wings and rest beside me




 Today I am spending one of those days in my life when I wish time would simply standstill...so that I could watch the world go by....



sitting beside a friend, letters in november
to sit beside a friend and talk about silly childhood and dreams of long ago....to  laugh  about how good it  was  to  play   from dawn 'til twilight.....

flowers against the clouds
to gaze at the clouds through flowers and greens

butterfly, red flower and rice crops
and keep wondering how beautiful the world that God created is...

sunset and branches
to look up and see bright days through branches of trees

low tide
and walk along the shore marveling at how vast God's greatness is compared to my woes

beach at low tide
and drink to the grandeur of the setting sun beside family and friends...

Today I thank thee Lord,
I thank thee for these healthy eyes, these moving fingers and breathing lungs
this beating heart and hearing ears,
I thank thee for this LIFE, I thank thee for everything and ask thy help
that I may share your goodness and spread your healing words....

  16. You are so clever. It appears that you have repaired it. There are times I would love to make time stand still and savor each moment, others that I would love to speed up. but gratefully it is all in His hands!
