For Liz......

I just read your post - I thought of this song for you:

I'll be praying for you.

Hi Jen - thank you so much for the encouraging words, and song! I love that song...we use to sing it when I was little in our church...with Dad....such a comforting song! Thank you again, for thinking, and especially praying for me, in this hard time in my life.....Your are a dear friend! Love, Liz

Stay, stay at home, my heart, and rest;
Home-keeping hearts are happiest,
For those that wander they know not where
Are full of trouble and full of care;
To stay at home is best.

Weary and homesick and distressed,
They wander east, they wander west,
And are baffled and beaten and blown about
By the winds of the wilderness of doubt;
To stay at home is best.

Then stay at home, my heart, and rest;
The bird is safest in its nest;
O'er all that flutter their wings and fly
A hawk is hovering in the sky;
To stay at home is best.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
