It seems our daily lives can become crammed with busy-ness! So much To do! So little time!
STOP for just a moment and let's count our blessings! First, we'll thank God for loving us. Enough. Enough to give His only Son to purchase our salvation! LOOK and see the beauty all around us, and within us. We are, after all, created in His image! We are humbly thankful for the gift of sight that we take for granted--Until our vision begins to blur and dim!
LISTEN and cherish that still small voice as it reminds us, "Every good And perfect gift comes from the Father above!" And that includes our Gift of hearing, for which we are eternally grateful! Yet, in our Humanness, don't we at times fret over trivial noise--such as the Outrageous clamor of birds visiting with each other just outside our Bedroom window at four o'clock on a mid-summer morning! Annoyed, yes, until we experience loss of that precious gift of sound . . .
Prayer for the Deaf
Thank you for loving us unconditionally!
You bless us daily with all we need,
And so much more than we deserve!
To think there are loved ones
The trill of the birds singing,
The music of stringed instruments,
And the many voices of those whom they love!
We accept as your permissive will.
Could rattle their serenity of soul!
Christ suffered and died for us
"Father, if it be thy will
Not my will but Thine be done."
So we bow to your perfect will, Father.
"By my stripes you are healed!"
Through the miracle of scientific technology!
Turn the sounds of their world
Illumine their courage and patience
With the melodious harmony of your
