Prayer for my Pets--
In Your infinite wisdom, Lord God,
When You created the Universe,
You blessed us with all living creatures.
We especially thank You for giving us our pets
Who are our friends and who bring us so much joy in life.
Their presence very often helps us get through trying times.
Kindly bless my pets. May my pets continue
giving me joy and remind me of Your power.
May we realize that as our pets
trust us to take care of them, so
we should trust You to take care of us,
and in taking care of them, we share Your love
for all Your creatures.
Enlighten our minds to preserve all
endangered species so that we may continue to
appreciate all Your creations. Amen.
PRAYER TO ST. FRANCIS
FOR OUR PETS--
Good St. Francis, you loved all of God's creatures.
To you they were your brothers and sisters.
Help us to follow your example
of treating every living thing with kindness.
St. Francis, Patron Saint of animals,
watch over my pets
and keep my companions safe and healthy.
I was truly touched by your beautiful, surprise gift, Pat. Thank you!
PS. Eileen said it was hard to keep this surprise a secret, but she did it!
Meanwhile, my friend Jan, gave me an unexpected gift as well. This adorable country girl with her animals. Isn't she cute? I love her. Thank you, Jan.
Surprises are a wonderful way to end the week.
Have a blessed day!
