Prayer begins where human capacity ends
~ Marian Anderson
As the sun comes up no matter where we live, some days simply call for a moment of silent prayers of hope, peace and thanks.
This morning, in the wake of the devastating wrath of Mother Nature in Oklahoma I don't think it matters if you normally pray or not - it's just something we will all do. It doesn't matter what religion you practice (or even if you don't practice anything at all) a simple moment of positive and healing prayers will be offered up for those in the path.
As for me, I do pray. So, my thoughts and prayers are with all the communities who will be searching for loved ones and picking up the pieces of their shattered lives.
Our prayers are the very least we can offer.
I have friends in Oklahoma and I have said my prayers of thanksgiving they were all out of harms way!
Today give extra hugs to your loved ones as they head out the door. Say one more kind word, think one more positive thought - for life can change in a heartbeat. Life turns on a dime, forces beyond our control can change our lives and leave us stunned - don't let a few moments of joy pass you by today!
