Serenity Prayer

Things don’t always go the way you plan them… Sometimes it takes a bit longer to get to where you want to be… Sometimes the road seem to go forever… Sometimes the wait could be too much to bear… But with God by my side, I know I can hang on just a little bit longer…

Angel’s Prayer

Angel’s Nightly Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep
The king-size bed is soft and deep

I sleep right in the center groove
My human being can hardly move!

I’ ve trapped their legs, they’re tucked in tight
And here is where I pass the night

No one disturbs me or dares intrude
Till morning comes and “I want food!”

I sneak up slowly to begin
My nibbles on my mommy’s chin.

For the morning’s here and it’s time to play
I always seem to get my way.

*Not my poem, but is sure fit Angel to a T! My partner posted this in her website. I just liked it so much I thought I’d share it with you all.

Bedtime Prayer

Now, I lay me down to rest
I thank the Lord; my life is blessed
I have my family and my home
And freedom, should I choose to roam.

My days are filled with skies of blue
My nights are filled with sweet dreams, too
I’ve no reason to beg or plead
I have been given all I need.

Beneath the subtle moonlit glow
I thank the Lord, so He will know
How grateful I am for my life
In times of glory and of strife.

The times of glory give me hope
The times of strife teach me to cope
Thus, I am much stronger in turn
Yet grounded, still, with much to learn.

Now, I lay me down to rest
I thank the Lord; I’ve passed the test
Of yet another day on earth
Grateful for its abundant worth.

This day has been a special dream
From morning ‘til the last moonbeam
Yet, should the coming dawn bring sorrow
I’ll rise, thankful I’ve reached tomorrow.
