Thankful For Our Needs

Compliments of The Feathered Nest

What to Pray For
I asked for bread and got a stone;
I used the stone to grind the grain
That made the flour to form the bread
That I could not obtain.

Instead of asking Him to give
The things for which we pray,
All that we need to ask from God
Is this: show us the way.

~ James A. Bowman ~

Count your blessings, they ARE there ~ some days you just have to look harder for them. 

Blessings to you dear friends.
