Bless my computer ...

A friend sent this to me today and it was too cute and true not to share ....

TO: God.com

Dear Lord,

Every single evening

As I'm lying here in bed,

This tiny little Prayer

Keeps running through my head:

God bless all my family

Wherever they may be,

Keep them warm and safe from harm

For they're so close to me.

And God, there is one more thing

I wish that you could do;

Hope you don't mind me asking,

Please bless my computer, too.

Now I know that it's unusual

To Bless a motherboard,

But listen just a second

While I explain it to you, Lord.

You see, that little metal box

Holds more than odds and ends;

Inside those small compartments

Rest so many of my friends.

I know so much about them

By the kindness that they give,

And this little scrap of metal

Takes me in to where they live.

By faith is how I know them

Much the same as you.

We share in what life brings us

And from that our friendships grew.

Please take an extra minute

From your duties up above,

To bless those in my address book [& THOSE WHO COMMENT ON MY BLOG]

That's filled with so much love.

Wherever else this prayer may reach

To each and every friend,

Bless each e-mail inbox

And each person who hits 'send' [POST].

When you update your Heavenly list

On your own Great CD-ROM,

Bless everyone who says this prayer

Sent up to GOD.com


Hey - I am still hanging in there. Sorry I haven't been around much .I have just been so busy .There are lots of bumps in the road to smooth out, craters pot holes to fix and I can't really talk about them here.

I have been very busy with my little guys and my teen spent a lot of the weekend here. Still up to his old tricks but we got along fine. I just have to forever had to keep my mouth shut.

Never miss a post

Hi Trish - that was adorable and I am printing that one out. Glad to hear things are going reasonably well for you - it takes time, it does. I have another blog also that I write about more personal stuff - sometimes I think its best to keep it just for you like a diary. I have found it a great way of getting everything out of my head into one place - very cathartic. It's a great idea!! You know the thing is we are all vulnerable with human frailities and sometimes we forget that. I applaud you for being real. Take the best of Care.

I love this poem! it is soo cute! thanks for sharing, good luck with your other blog!

Louise said...

love the poem! I've tried to explain 'blogging friends' to people who don't blog and they just don't get it at all. Take care of yourself, the private blog sounds like a good idea.

It is a lovely poem and I've been thinking about you during this time.

Crazed Mom said...

Hang on there Swaetpea. You can handle anything after the loss of your beloved daughter, the chaos of raising twins and everything else you do. I believe in you.
Thinking of you and wishing you the best. HUGGLES.

Just Me. said...

What a sweet and cute poem and I've been thinking about you.

I had to giggle a bit at I just had to keep my mouth shut cuz that would have been impossible for me. But you are trying to make it work. I just want you to know that I'm here.


Gill said...

Cute! Glad to hear you are hanging in there Trish. Keep at it, it will get better, it just takes time and patience. {{hugs}}

Jenn said...

The poem was really sweet. :) I'm so glad to hear that you got to spend some time with your son. Still praying for you and your family.

Laura said...

Trish! What a lovely post! :)
I am soooooooo sorry to have been away from the blog world for so long! Now, I've got A LOT of catching up on your previous posts to do!!!

When you get the chance, come on over. I've got something for you on my blog :) xo

PlanningQueen said...

Hope you keep smoothing out those pot holes. It often feels good to write thoughts down and a private journal sounds like a perfect idea.

Jen at Semantically driven said...

I've given you some blog bling because you deserve it (I know you've already been given the same one). I'm usually slack in passing it on, but I actually have this time. Do with it what you will.

Amanda said...

Awww, I like the computer prayer :)

I hope everything gets worked out for you soon. You are in my thoughts.

Princess said...

I voted for you cuz I think you're a Top Momma!
