MY DAILY PRAYER

I found this poem a long time ago, it has been very dear to me and a part of my daily prayer. It is by Grace E. Easley

Gentle Jesus listen closely
To the words that I would say,
'Tis with love that knows no limits,
That I come to Thee today.
For without You life is empty,
With no comfort any place,
I have naught save You to help me,
Do not turn away Thy face.

Gentle Jesus teach me patience,
Take away this foolish pride,
Grant I only be permitted,
To continue at Thy side.

Though my heart is sometimes weary,
And my eyes are filled with tears,
I have only but to tell Thee,
And my sorrow diappears.

Gentle Jesus, Lord and Master,
Deep within this human shell,
Lives a soul which Thou hast ransomed,
It would love Thee long and well.
You have felt as I am feeling,
Who could better understand,
Than the One who meekly listened,
To their "crucify the Man"!

Hi Andrea!
It was such a blessing to hear from you on my site today. I will be posting my bean soup recipes on my site in the next few days & will let you know when they are done. It is great to meet you & yes thanks for adding me to your friend list, I will do the same. It was nice to visit your blog & see you list many of the same resources I am using. Do you homeschool (I assume since there was alot of Charlotte Mason links on your site)? I have a 3yo & 5 month old I will be homeschooling & I can't wait. Thanks about the baby blankets. I make aprons too but haven't gotten them online yet. I do sell baby blankets if you are interested, but the one with the pictures "Learning to Pray" has mostly girls on it. God Bless!
