My thoughts toward prayers ...now.

“My Thoughts Of An Answer…”

 

Seems we are fragile …but we already knew that.  Afraid of the unknown …but we knew that too.  We try to share our paths to feel less alone, be less …alone.  Sometimes we succeed, sometimes despite our best tries we don't …succeed… least not for very long (if even at all) and the nights and days merge into our existence.  What DO we pray for?  Continuance?  of our nows? or endings - perhaps less pain full than what we perceive?  Even both… I KNOW I have - have you?

 

"The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures…" sweet words of power and comfort for a future MORE than what we have.  Every sunrise I watch the coffee mysts rise and expand into transparency, taste dreams with each breath - sometimes, but now less often, even my own.  In the eves, I see the stars I reached for and know others reach now …and I wish them well and for the sweetness of their success.

 

I've touched the Face of my God, felt the warmth of His tears in my life.  Still afraid - yeah but that fear gives meaning to my own prayers even as they are for the ones I still care for …am afraid for…

 

I’ve found nearness doesn’t control Love, nor time or distance lessen it.  Thoughts and dreams empower it and prayers …let you KNOW it’s still there - inside.

Amen.. I very much appreciate your truth...Your truth, and your questioning, although our answers won't sway your beliefs.... I completely agree that the MORE is where I pray to be. I believe in the MORE. I just so appreciate your words.

"Amen..." works. Life as we live it, is seldom as we want it...
Life is fragile, prayer is ongoing, Love is ever present.
I’ve been collecting dandelions. I collected a jar of puffs to wish on, now collecting the flowers to make jelly. Versatile little plant it is. Stay safe Chris, your thoughts are always a welcomed read. 😊

I always say faith is a fragile but beautiful thing to breathe. Each one of us breathing that hope at some point and coming to a personal conclusion of what prayer and faith indeed is. Cosmically, we are always searching and holding that faith like sand in-between our fingers but still, we hold onto it and the whys and hows become a part of us over time. Good to absorb your words today Chris, stay well :)
