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!
