A Short Sunday Inspirational

Good Morning all my friends. Just a quick post this morning to check in with you all.  I have really missed blogging but have managed to stop by and visit with a few of you when I can sit and catch a moment. 
Mother is holding her own right now.Thanks you for your continued prayers and thoughts. 

Today I have a sweet little gift to share with you.  Last September on Grandparent's Day Darbee Rae gave me a special gift.  At the time I didn't realize just how special it would become to me. I keep a journal of my daily activities and have since I was in grammer school.  Remember those little 5 year diaries with the lock and key.  Still have all of mine.  Several years ago I started a prayer journal also..  But this gift was such a sweet gesture.  This is what I got all wrapped up in a cute little bag...
It wasn't the clock, or the primitive candle mat .. It was this rock.
Yes, a plain old rock she picked up out of the yard.  Holly had let her paint it but being only 2 at the time, this is as good as it got.  But there was a poem attatched to it.  Hope my picture is plain enough for you to read the complete poem. Kept getting a glare .
Okay, it says:

I'm just a tiny little rock
Picked up from off the ground
You won't forget to say a prayer
If you keep me around
Put me on your pillow
when you make your bed
and when you crawl inside at night
I'll hit you on the head
But please don't scream or holler
or like a lion roar
Just close you eyes , say your prayers
and drop me on the floor
In the morning when you wake up
and I make you stub your toe
Shout,"Glory Hallelujah!"
Say a prayer and off you go
Put me back upon your pillow
let the cycle never end
I'll be your little prayer rock
and maybe your best friend.

That little rock stays on my bedside table for almost a year now.  Altho its not on my pillow I see it when I set the clock at night and turn off the alarm in the morning.  Lately I have to say I have been doing quite a bit of praying and commnicating with God.  This little rock brings a smile to my face.

Sometime we all need a little reminder that an extra little time talking with our maker might just be a good way to start and end our day.

Hoping to be back really soon with a few pictures to share.  Hoping you stop today and say a prayer of thankfulness for all your blessings in life.  Until we talk really soon.
