Horizon House Prayer

I saw this on another blog. I was touched, and wanted to share. Here is the daily prayer recited at Horizon House

In the name of the Father (beh semeh ab)
the son (beh wold)
and the Holy Sprit (beh menfes kidus)
One God (ahadu amlak)
Amen. (ahmen)

Our God, we pray to ask you to please bless this bread and this water,
we pray to ask you to please provide to those who are hungry and thirsty
and give to them with your blessings,
Amen.
Let those who are working hard for others and those with giving hands be blessed.
In the name of your Son, Jesus Christ,
Amen.

Hi, Grace. No news yet. In fact, even when I have adoption related worries or insights, I don't really post them anymore. I have been terribly (and probably needlessly) blog-shy since that family had their adoption stopped because of a posting on their blog (a picture posted too early, I think, but also referrences to fundraising). I'm so long-winded sometimes that I'm afraid I might inadvertently say something that might come across wrong and interrupt things for us....and it would be REALLY difficult to recover from that! Thanks, so much, for stopping by and for thinking of us. I'll let you know when I hear anything! How are things going for you?

It is so beautiful!

How am I going to spend time with my babe there and hear this without completely losing it?!
