Morning Prayer



                                                       In the still of the morning air
                                                       a calm peace does descend
                                                       I find myself renewed in strength
                                                       to greet my day again

                                                       And no day is unmeetable
                                                       if on rising my first thought
                                                       is to Thank God for his blessings
                                                       and loving, care he has brought

                                                       Susie Swanson,2012

I want to say Happy Valentine's Day to all of my loyal, and wonderful friends. I also want to tell everyone that I will be gone from Blogger for a little while as there is sickness in my family. My brother is in the hospital with a possible heart attack, (don't know for sure yet) and my brother in law is in another hospital with kidney failure and they are starting him on Dialysis..It has been an ongoing thing for him since last summer..He has Diabetics..My brother was admitted  with very severe pain in his stomach and chest. They are doing the Catherization today ..On top of all this, I've been sick with  cold/flu like symptons for over a week..Nothing out of the ordinary there, as everyone already knows that stuff is going around..I just need some time right now to take of everything and hopefully will be back soon. Please be praying for my family and I'm already praying for yours.. we all need prayers.. there are so many in worse shape and I thank God each day for letting me get out of bed..Be back soon and May God Bless Each One of you...Blessings, Susie

  11. Said a prayer for you just before I posted this, Susie, but I'll say more. By the way, I tried several times with that friend connect thing on Facebook, but it would never work right for me. Facebook is kind of a farce anyway, it seems to me. It almost never works like it should.
