a prayer for tattered creatures








Last night as I was tucking Anna in she showed me a butterfly's wing she'd found in the back yard. To her amazement and mine, she was able to identify the butterfly in her animal kingdom book by slipping the wing on top of the butterfly image in the book.

Just before I left I asked her if there was anyone we should pray for.

"For butterflies that have lost their wings, for butterflies with a tear in their wing and for the ones who died," she said, "And also for dogs with only one eye."

"also for dogs with only one eye" I love that.

I had a dog with one eye growing up. She died, so perhaps Anna's prayers will help Cocoa reach eternal doggie salvation.

I love their prayers at this age.
