I Prayed, All Unafraid

“Dear God, I prayed, all unafraid (as we’re inclined to do),
I do not need a handsome man, but let him be like You;
I do not need one big and strong, nor yet so very tall,
nor need he be some genius, or wealthy, Lord, at all;
but let his head be high, dear God, and let his eye be clear,
his shoulders straight, whate’er his state, whate’er his earthly sphere;
and let his face have character, a ruggedness of soul,
and let his whole life show, dear God, a singleness of goal;
then when he comes (as he will come) with quiet eyes aglow,
I’ll understand that he’s the man I prayed for long ago.”
~ Ruth Bell Graham,
Philanthropist, Poet, Author & Painter

A New Year & Your Dreams

“New Year… …. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written.
New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved.
Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year
of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself
in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change.”
~ Sarah Ban Breathnach,
Author, Philanthropist & Public Speaker

The Right Answer

“Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer.
Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.”
~ John F. Kennedy,
35th President of the United States (1961-1963)

The Capacity to Believe

“I’ve always believed in God. I also think that’s the sort of thing
that either comes as part of the equipment, the capacity to believe,
or at some point in your life, when you’re in a position
where you actually need help from a Power greater than yourself,
you simply make an agreement.”
~ Stephen King,
Novelist, Short Story Writer, Screenwriter, Columnist, Actor,
Television Producer, Film Director, Musician and Singer
