Keeper of the Plains

It's kind of a significant day being 9/11 and all. Like many I have memories of the day / morning. But for now, I want to offer a prayer of thanks for simple things.

Thank you God for Fridays, for a home, for my husband, for a job, for my family, for You, that I have not known War, Hunger, the Enemy, Disease, that You care about me enough to have planned a hope and a future for me.

The Keeper of the Plains is a very tall statue in Wichita on the Arkansas River. He's lifting his hands in prayer. The title and the pose remind me to keep the faith and pray...for faith, wisdom, forgiveness, love, peace and joy.

Have a blessed day.
