It's Friday Already.......

Friday already, wow this week flew by! I have been busy in the studio, and my original plan was to post on Monday, but I had to take a moment to wish each of you a most fabulous weekend! I also wanted to share this beautiful poem with you by Helen Steiner Rice a wonderful woman and poet, she is no longer with us but her beautiful work will always remain....

No Prayer Goes Unheard

Often we pause and wonder
when we kneel down to pray
Can God really hear
The prayers that we say...
But if we keep praying
And talking to him
He'll brighten the soul
That was clouded and dim.
As we continue to pray
Our burden seems lighter
Our sorrow is softened
And our outlook is brighter.
For though we feel helpless
And alone when we start,
Our prayer is the key
That opens the heart.
And as our heart opens
The dear Lord comes in
And the prayer that we felt
We could never begin
For the Lord understands
And gives us new strength
By the touch of His hands.

Helen Steiner Rice
from her book "Loving Promises"

Smiles to each of you....have a fab weekend!
