Gratitude - November 13th 2007


Recommended Posts


and nice weather again,

one more year that winter

is slow to show up.

So Grateful for all the prayers

that were said for me.

Could say it is serenity now,

I'm ready to accept any news

good or bad and face life once


This prayer came to my mind last night

I think it could help some people so

here it is.

I Do Not Ask, O Lord

I do not ask, O Lord, that life may be

A pleasant road;

I do not ask that Thou wouldst take from me

Aught of its load.

For one thing, only Lord, dear Lord, I plead:

Lead me aright.

Though strength should falter and heart should bleed,

Through peace to light.

I do not ask, O Lord, that Thou shouldst shed

Full radiance here;

Give but a ray of peace, that I may tread

Without a fear.

I do not ask my cross to understand,

My way to see;

Better in darkness just to feel Thy hand,

And follow Thee.

Joy is like restless day, but peace divine

Like quiet night;

Lead me, O Lord, till perfect day shall shine,

Through peace to light.

(Adelaide Anne Procter)

Have a good day, I'll have one.

Love to all,

Can't believe that I am saying that I am grateful to be back at work today, but I am. Being off yesterday and being by myself left too much idle time to set and think. I am really getting anxious about dads mediastinoscopy on Friday. So I am thankful for the "work" distraction. Also, it is a very warm day today (60's) and a chance of rain that we so desperatly need. Also grateful for a husband and son that I love so very much and who take such wonderful care of me. And most importantly that dad continues to feel GREAT.
