A prayer with Brae in mind as she flies to China this morning


Actually, this prayer fills my mind with thoughts of Kyrie as a little girl. Gathering her art supplies, she would copy this prayer and illustrate it with her trusty colored pencils until I would exclaim, "Wow, we need to find a frame for this!" But, that said, this is still for Brae-Brae.

God be in my head, and in my understanding.
God be in my eyes, and in my looking.
God be in my mouth, and in my speaking.
God be in my heart, and in my thinking.
God be at my end, and at my departing.

I didn't know she was going to China - for how long?

she is filling in for a teacher that had to return to the states sick--Brae was THRILLED to go-she returns to her beloved South Philly mid-June. She is teaching elementary kids English-16 classes a week and lives right in the city amid the amazing culture.
