For today I would like to share an inspirational writing:
"Dear Lord, help me to understand as I kneel to pray,
That you, indeed will answer it though there are several ways.
The first of course,is obvious,the one we most like to receive.
If everyone got a "yes" to their prayers it would be easy to believe.
But Father, there are two more ways you may handle my appeal.
So, please, don't let your denial dampen my spiritual zeal.
For you alone can see beyond the benefits I ask for,
So help me take"no" for an answer,when you decide to slam the door.
And don't let me forget the third way you may answer my request,
Because you know exactly the time that it would benefit me best.
You see,the hardest answer of them all,develops true virtue,
For we develop patience Lord when we wait on you.
I really like this beautiful writing and I think we can certainly relate this to our own lives when the answer to our prayers is not as we expected.
And some photos: I love to share photos of my family so here is Callum my lovely grandson:
