Today's Tidbit of Helpful Information: Prayer

Again, more thought-provoking than helpful today...although I don't know anything more helpful than prayer!

 Don't Wait to Pray

We do not need to bow our heads,
    or fold our hands and kneel,
When we desire to speak to God
    His presence we can feel.
While hands are busy making beds,
    or planning daily meals,
Or busy washing little things
    and mending toes and heels;
Or busy cleaning pots and pans,
    or dusting up the floor,
Our hands can be right on the job
    but hearts to God can soar.
When making beds we should thank God
    for white sheets which we spead.
For millions never know the feel
    of a nice, clean, comfy bed.
And when we're busy making meals
    it's nice to breathe a prayer,
And thank God for the rich supply
    of good food everywhere.
Though washing dishes is a chore
    and we don't like to do it.
Thank God there was food on the plate
    and we had strength to chew it.
When tempted to complain and fret
    it's time to stop a minute,
And thank God for our "home sweet home"
    and everybody in it.
It really "happies" up the heart
    and merrily it sings
When we take time to talk to God
    'bout little homey things.
We should not wait until the night
    to thank God for His care;
In every minute, every hour
    there's reason for a prayer.

I am in commando declutter mode around here. I have been clipping and saving little bits of helpful information throughout my married life....and that's it. Just saving them. Sometimes they are in my nightstand drawer, a folder, the junk drawer, the cookbook, etc. I know a great idea is to store them in a household binder but I am not even remotely interested in adding ANYTHING else to this house right now. So in an effort to rid my house of these little bits and bobs of paper, I'm going to post them here, like a cork own Pinterest, if you will.


  1. Thank you for sharing such an inspiring poem of truth. And thank you for your visit and words of kindness! I posted some of our favorite read aloud authors and would love for you to follow me on Pinterest (I have a fave read aloud board). I'd love to follow you back.
