A Thanksgiving Prayer

May God bless you and yours this day and always.

If you are missing someone today,
I pray you will know His peace
and be comforted by God’s eternal love.

In memory of Bill

Never stop giving,
Never stop believing,
Never stop loving,
Never say that word.

The world is an endless
Arch of beginnings
and endings,
Hellos and goodbyes.

The Reading Of The Names, with verses from Psalm 61

Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.

From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee,

when my heart is overwhelmed:

lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

Psalm 61: 1-2 (KJV)

The Reading Of The Names


Although I cannot understand, we know it helps to observe and listen.  Each in our own small and loving way.  The Psalms so often give voice to what would otherwise be wordless in our hearts.  Silence is part of prayer too.
