Now I Lay Me Down
Acrylic on canvas
20 x 24 inches
Made this one up quite some time ago. It was in reference to a night time prayer I used to say with my boys. I didn't like the whole prayer, so I changed it to a kinder version that left out "if I should die before I wake . . ."
"Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep, please keep us safe through the night, and bless us, dear Lord, with your morning light." Then we would ask God to bless each person we loved by name.
I do miss those sweet voices and tender prayers. So honest and true to listen to the heart of a child.
(I will be out of town for a few days, so I won't be posting again until next week.)
