I Said A Prayer For You Today...

I finished this card last night using an image that I'd drawn quite some time ago. I haven't been sure what to use him with, but then I remembered a part of a prayer that I had read somewhere and knew it would be perfect for the little bear. My daughter, the dragonologist I mentioned in a previous post, thought that rather than praying he was actually begging for some more chocolate!


Inside the card, aligned down the right hand side, is this prayer by Frank J. Zamboni:

I said a prayer for you today
And know God must have heard.
I felt the answer in my heart
Although He spoke no word.

I didn't ask for wealth or fame,
I knew you wouldn't mind.
I asked Him to send treasures
Of a far more lasting kind.

I asked that He be near you
At the start of each new day;
To grant you health and blessings
And friends to share your way.

I asked for happiness for you
In all things great and small.
But it was for His loving care
I prayed for most of all.
