Thankfulness Reflections Day 3

Thankfulness Reflections Day 3
 


On this beautiful Autumn day when my heart is still aching with a sadness from our loss I find myself thankful for the prayers of others. Prayers of answered strength, prayers that cover us in peace. I am thankful for those those gentle prayers that are lifted to the Heavens in our behalf. Those beautiful answered prayers that make the days bearable, and the tears a little less. I am thankful for the people with hearts so kind enough to speak them. I am thankful for a God who weeps with me in my sadness, who loves me in brokenness, and who grants me mercy by answering prayers of comfort, peace, and strength.


GOD BLESS YOU
 
 I seek in prayerful words, dear friend,
My heart's true wish to send you,
That you may know that, far or near,
My loving thoughts attend you.
 
I cannot find a truer word,
Nor better to address you;
Nor song, nor poem have I heard
Is sweeter than God bless you!
 
God bless you! So I've wished you all
Of brightness life, possesses;
For can there any joy at all
Be your unless God blesses?
 
God bless you! So I breathe a charm
Lest grief's dark night oppress you,
For how can sorrow bring you harm
If ' tis God's way to bless you?
 
And so, "through all thy days
May Shadows touch thee never-"
But this alone- God bless thee-
Then art thou safe forever.
