country girl prayer...

Okay, its really the "Cowboys’ Prayer"... but it fits for the most part:
(Got this from Ree at Pioneer Woman)

O Lord, I’ve never lived where churches grow;
I’ve loved creation better as it stood
That day you finished it, so long ago
And looked upon your work and called it good.

Just let me live my life as I’ve begun!
And give me work that’s open to the sky;
Make me a partner of the wind and sun
And I won’t ask a life that’s soft and high.

Make me as big and open as the plains;
As honest as the horse between my knees;
Clean as the wind that blows behind the rains;
Free as the hawk that circles down the breeze.

Just keep an eye on all that’s done and said;
Just right me sometime when I turn aside;
And guide me on the long, dim trail ahead
That stretches upward towards the Great Divide.

  1. Stopping by from LFCA to send love and thoughts to surround you as you remember your unfulfilled due date Monday, so sorry for your lost baby. The prayer is beautiful.

  2. Thank you so much Rebecca. It really is healing to have others remember our first angel. I just read your daughter's story, and I am so sorry for the loss of your Lillian. She was lovely.


Leave me some love!
