Bluebird, I love that! I really don't understand what it is that creates the feeling of elation and joy when singing hymns or words of respect, love and adoration to the one we worship. I guess its reciprical at that point. Our songs and prayers in song go out and are received and returned by the one we worship.

Lola, I'm so sorry for your family in the loss of a most precious child. There are no words to express the horrible grief and sense of loss.

I'm so thankful you have seen the beauty and purpose in this short life. Bless you.

Lola, I'm so sorry. What a befitting name for a child's short life. Gabriel, an angel. Thanks so much for what you wrote as to what his short sweet life brought to you and others. Love and Light, Lynn

Lola, your words are precious. What a testimony to Gabriel's life and all he taught during his very short life span. I am carrying your family in prayer.

I pray in bed before I fall asleep. I pray in the middle of the night and in the morning when I awake. I pray when I get out of bed and start the day. I pray when I hear a siren, ambulance or the news of someone in trouble. I pray for God to heal and bless the abused, those in pain, the ill, and the financially strapped. I pray whenever and wherever my thoughts turn to those in need of God's help.
And I too would be honored if Anno and/or anyone prayed for me. Ciao for now,

Dear Lola: With deep sadness I read about your family's loss. But what a gain in insight, gratitude, compassion, etc. May God continue strengthening you and yours, for there is no sorrow on earth that heaven cannot heal.

It's truly interesting to read about each others' view on prayer. About singing a prayer... music prepares our worshiping heart to receive God's message. It connects us to heaven. It moves us trust him more, etc. Heaven is the place where music was born. When we worship through music we can have a better understanding. Music is a great expression of the thankful soul towards its Creator. It's more than rythm and sound. Many beautiful prayers are sung. In fact, hymns are considered prayers meant to be sung. Each time I sing to worship God, ithink about the words as my prayer that moment. It is a beautiful, humbling and moving experience.
In His love, Songbird

Dear Lola, I will include your little angel Gabriel (what an appropiate name) in my prayers. May he rest in peace.
What a wonderful strong sister you must have, to be able to grow into a better mother through her sick child.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
