Once Upon a Time….

I was thinking the other day what would be uplifting in our world right now, especially in America, where children are being harmed and our country seems lost in the mire of cultural and racial issues. I was taught to believe that all humans were created by God, no matter who they are, were they are from, or the color of their skin, God designed all.  We are here to love each other as God loves us. To me these lyrics say so much. If you don’t believe this, that is okay, maybe someday you will.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Prayer by David Foster and Carol Bayer Sager

I pray you’ll be our eyes, and watch us where we go
And help us to be wise in times when we don’t know
Let this be our prayer, when we lose our way
Lead us to the place, guide us with your grace
To a place where we’ll be safe

I pray we ‘Il find your light, and hold it in our hearts
When stars go out each night,
Remind us where you are
Let this be our prayer, when shadows fill our day
Help us find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe

A world where pain and sorrow will be ended
And every heart that’s broken will be mended
And we’ll remember we are all God’s children
Reaching out to touch you
Reaching to the sky

We ask that life be kind, and watch us from above
We hope each soul will find another soul to love
Let this be our prayer, just like every child,

Who needs to find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe
Lead us  to  a place, guide us with your grace
To a place so we’ll be safe.

    1. Kim, I am so glad I could share it with you, it is one of my favorite songs, song by Josh Groban. In the mayhem toward the creeping lost of democracy in America, I thought we needed a prayer or two. Karen 🙂
