Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep   Leave a comment

There is a prayer we said as children when our mothers came in to kiss us goodnight.  I’m wondering if this prayer might be more comforting for us now – us in our 70’s or so – as we lay us down to sleep and pray to the Lord our soul to keep.

Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray to God my soul to take.

Lion and Blue

Lion and Blue, a love story between a lion and a blue butterfly, written by Robert Vavra. Blue left the lion in search of her golden destiny, and he begins to search for her. “In search of you I wandered far, and all the while I thought, ‘Why could we not have met when the time was right, when youth had lit my stars.’’ Then a giraffe speaks: ‘But yesterday is over,’ whispered the far-seeing giraffe, ‘as tomorrow is yet to come.’ An elephant adds further wisdom: ‘The only time that is ever right,’ rumbled the wise elephant, ‘is now, so make haste, this journey of yours is a one way trip eternally.’
