You hear me when I pray
Words flowing full and free
Though others call Your Name
I know You hear me

So many voices raised
In sorrow, joy or pain
You bend to hear my voice
I am Your only child

This poem gives me such a warm and happy feeling, Linda. So sweet. And true.

I have been so out of the loop--crazy week. I have missed you. Do you have Ann's book yet? I just received mine today! I am so excited. I started reading it to the boys at the dinner table, and...well, the beginning is not such a great start for supper prayer. :) But it is so beautiful. I can't wait to set aside some time with it. (and I saw your name in there under the thankyous!)

Love to you, lady.
