Saturday Prayer

Hello God,
I still don't know about you, but I'm trying to put that aside and just let it be. I have some things I want to say and ask.
First, I want to pray for the health and safety of my crazy big sister, because as much as she drives me up the wall when I'm around her, she's still my big sister, and I just found out that she's two months pregnant with her second child. I'm so completely overjoyed and ecstatic for her. I think S was surprised at how happy I am, because my sister and I don't click at all. But she's still my big sis and I still can't wait to meet my new niece (I'm convinced). So please, please watch over and protect her and her family.
And while I'm at it, please watch over and protect the rest of my family and all of my friends near and far.
God, I need to ask for more patience. I never thought of myself as an impatient person, but that doesn't mean it wasn't there. I am impatient and S needs time and we need time, so I'm asking for a lot more patience. I need a big bucketful of warm, sweet honey patience to dip into freely whenever I'm feeling frustrated or annoyed with the people and situations around me.
S and I are driving up to Vermont today to enjoy your spectacular display of foliage and spend a little time with my parents. Please watch over us in our travels.
Okay God, thank you for listening, and being and.......well, you, I guess. :-)

Happy weekends, all. Can't wait to share foliage pictures with you (this pic is from last year).

Now that wasn't so hard, was it Molls?


What a beautiful prayer.

Have a wonderful time in the beautiful fall surroundings. I look forward to the pics.

Yep, I LOVE leafy, fall pictures.

Molls, you are ONTO Prayer--you know how, I mean, when you prayed, you prayed for OTHERS. That's a higher degree of prayer than just ""Gimme".

Good night, David! Good night, Chet!

I tried this Molls and well - it just did not 'feel right to me. Crazy huh? I think in time and with practice I can get this to feel morecomfortable - I am grateful you showed me this exercise. Congrats one being an AUntie!
