An Easter Prayer

God, give us eyes to see

the beauty of the spring,

And to behold Your majesty

in every living thing.

And may we see in lacy leaves

and every budding flower

The Hand that rules the universe

with gentleness and power.

And may this Easter grandeur

that spring lavishly imparts

Awaken faded flowers of faith

lying dormant in our hearts.

Give us ears to hear, dear God,

the springtime song of birds

With messages more meaningful

than man's often empty words.

Telling harried human beings

who are lost in dark despair

'Be like us and do not worry

for God has you in His care.'

~Helen Steiner Rice~

To all my friends here, I wish you a joyous day, filled with blessings and love!
