Rare, Spontaneous, Wonderful

My brother and his wife made a long trip to spend a few hours
in our "neck of the woods" this weekend.  
Before they left, three of us siblings and our spouses, 
and my father and mother met for a meal at a local restaurant.
 I forgot to take any pictures until right at the end 
as we were preparing to say our good-byes.
 I surreptitiously dug for my cell phone and took pictures around the table
as my Daddy (top picture) prayed.
I am blessed.
And I know it.
These were rare, rather spontaneous, and wonderful hours.
Oh, Lord!
You have been faithful.  You have been good!
"…The prayer of a righteous man (and woman) is powerful and effective" (James 5:16).
 God warms his hands at man's heart when he prays. - John Masefield


  1. My heart is touched! The pics of your family praying together - and those special moments - are priceless! But you know that! How blessed you are to be able to hear your dad pray!

  2. How totally lovely. Your dear family praying together and you are so very blessed to have both your parents still with you! May God keep blessing you sweet friend, your parents and all your family. Have a happy Sunday.

  3. I, too, am moved by this scene!

  4. Beautiful....what a precious gift!


  5. Very special times shared, and the photos are beautiful. Thank you for sharing them.

  6. How wonderful. This gave me such joy! xoxo friend!

  7. The images you captured are wonderful and I would surmise that everyone at that table would echo your statement of being blessed. What a beautiful family.

  8. Oh, such a treasure! I know you cherish both your family and your Faith, how wonderful that they are both also intertwined.
    Love and Prayers,

  9. Such precious memories. How wonderful that you thought to capture pictures. What a godly heritage.
