St Theresa's Prayer

St. Theresa's Prayer
May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you
are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite
possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing,
dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

I love this prayer...Hope all is well with you all. Please keep my Dad and family in your prayers. I am so glad Spring is here!
Warm regards, Jennifer aka Gigi

How Do I Love Thee?

How Do I Love Thee?

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;

I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use

In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath,

Smiles, tears, of all my life! and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Pink Passion

Have a lovely day filled with pink passion!

Happy Valentines Day

Set me as a seal upon your heart, for love is strong as death and jealousy as cruel as the grave. If a man offered all he had for love it would be utterly scorned. Song of Solomon

Happy Valentine's Day! this is one of my favorite verses.
On a note of praise- our grandson is home from the hospital! Please keep him in your prayers as he gets stronger! xx Love, Jennifer aka Gigi
