Untie the knots.....

Dear God,

Please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.

Remove the have nots,
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind.

Erase the will nots,
may nots,
might nots that may find
a home in my heart.

Release me from the could nots,
would nots and
should nots that obstruct my life.

And most of all, Dear God,

I ask that You remove from my mind,
my heart and my life all of the 'am nots'
that I have allowed to hold me back;

especially the thought
that I am not good enough.

AMEN

~~~ Father Ronnie Knott of Rhodelia, Kentucky ~~~

HOPE this touches somebody as much as it did me!

Breathing in Grace,

  2. Cute and powerful at the same time. Mother is in that twilight place between life and death. She has been like this for 3 days. Doctor has stopped all meds but comfort meds, which keeps her out of pain and more relaxed. I just sit by her bedside and wait for that last breath. She is so ready to go home and be reunited with our loved one there. I know God has a plan and will take her in His own time, He knows best. Tmrw is my birthday, how I pray she doesn't go then. Once again, I know God knows best. Thanks for your sweet message, please keep my Mom in your prayers. I've tried to blog a couple of times but can't seem to find any words to post.
