 Merry Christmas Everyone! I love you all so very much. It has been sooo difficult but with your love and support I am still afloat.
Found this and thought of my Healing Well Family:
Because You Said  A Prayer For me
Because you said a prayer for me
My view of life is brighter
The darkness seemed to fade away
And burdens grew much lighter
Because you took the time to pray
A prayer for me today,
My tears were turned to laughter
And joy returned to stay
The world is full of hurt today
And hearts are filled with care,
But many lives can still be touched
Because you said a prayer
Thank you everyone for being so caring.
This little poem is a fridge magnet I found in the thrift shop... I've put it on my refrigerator and every time I read it , I'm reminded of the wonderful family here that prays for me always... and it helps more than you'll ever, every know.
Healing thoughts and PRAYERS! to you all

Mary: This part of the prayer poem resonated deeply with me.Because you took the time to pray
'A prayer for me today,
My tears were turned to laughter
And joy returned to stay'
When I was an atheist, I dismissed the healing properties of prayer as a 'placebo effect.' Now I know better. In time, your praying will present you with unexpected opportunities to heal all of those ailments you have listed in your profile. I pray for all of your dis-ease to transform into ease through the loving hand of God.
