Spirit Whispers

To Pray is to
laugh
whistle
dance on happy feet
sing
shout
and jump---higher than ever before
But it is also to 
whisper
wonder
stumble in dark places
cry 
scream
or just hold a worried head
in tired hands and wait......
Prayer is our tired reaching out
to the One
who holds us closer
and loves us more 
than we would dare imagine.
~Greta Schumm

Beautiful! and taken very much to heart Marilyn. My nephew and his wife are expecting their baby daughter soon, and have named her Rainy. I'm so surprised to see that name come up. It's so pretty.
