A Wing And A Prayer

©

Published: July 2013

Under the wing of an angel, we feel protected
Through prayers to God, we feel connected

Peace is said to be offered on the wings of a dove
Prayers can bring peace along with hope, faith, and love

Wings of a jet plane provide steady flight
I pray you remain steady and strong through this fight

Butterflies have wings to fly playfully free
And free from this monster is what I pray you'll soon be

Birds spread their wings as they may leave their nest
We're spreading our prayers that you'll always be Blessed

Go fight and win this battle you didn't start
On the wings of an angel and prayers from my heart

At the gym I go to three times a week there is an elderly widower who always smiled and said hello. One day I reached out to touch his arm and he said, "I'd rather have a hug." I gave him a hug and have continued to do so every time we meet. He tells me that hug is what brings him to the gym and gives him something to look forward to on gym days.

I lost a sister to Squamous Cell cancer, a brain tumor. Now my heart has been broken again for another sister is battling breast cancer. I see her getting so tired and worn out. I hope the words of this poem will uplift her spirit to give the strength to continue to fight. She is a fighter, but there are days when she feels so tired, so worn out to where she wants to quit.Thank God for the family support she has to encourage my baby sister to continue to fight on. She finished up all her chemo treatments. Now the radiation for seven weeks started a few days ago. She has to go every day for the seven weeks.
