and Grandmother taught us to pray . . .


“Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray thee, Lord, my soul to keep;
See me safely through the night,
And wake me with the morning’s light.”

God bless you and keep you all.

. . . and Emerson spoke


“This is my wish for you:
Comfort on difficult days,
smiles when sadness intrudes,
rainbows to follow the clouds,
laughter to kiss your lips,
sunsets to warm your heart,
hugs when spirits sag,
beauty for your eyes to see,
friendships to brighten your being,
faith so that you can believe,
confidence for when you doubt,
courage to know yourself,
patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.”

~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

A prayer will flip the switch.


“No matter where we’ve been, what we’ve done
or how awful we feel right now,
the One we may be running from knows exactly where we are.
He has placed a light of peace in our hearts.
A prayer will flip the switch.”

~ Iyanla Vanzant

To every cry of “Oh God!”


“Each moment contains a hundred messages from God.
To every cry of “Oh God!”
He answers a hundred times: “I am Here.”

~ Rumi

Whenever sorrows come again . . .


Whenever sorrows come again,
meet it with smiles and laughter,
saying, “O my Creator, save me from its harm; and do not deprive me of its good.
Lord, remind me to be thankful,
let me feel no regret if its benefit passes away.”

~ Rumi
