Prayer Beret and Scarf from Lucille P. Robinson…Thank You.


“Prayer Beret and Scarf from Lucille P. Robinson…Thank You.”

Prayer Beret and Scarf made by Lucille P. Robinson, Christmas 2012 Thank You, Lucille.

Prayer Beret and Scarf made by Lucille P. Robinson, Christmas 2012 Thank You, Lucille.

In April of 2011 Lucille P. Robinson read my poem, “I Said a Prayer for You Today.” She liked it. She makes prayer shawls and gives them to the sick, those who need comforting, or to say “thank you.” Her ministry is so wonderful. She wrote and asked if she could use my prayer poem in a card to give along with the prayer shawls. I gave her permission and she paid me more than I asked. She prints it on the cards she gives with her prayer shawls.

In October 2012, Lucille wrote me and asked me what my favorite colors were. I told her turquoise blue and teal. She said she had found a pattern for a beret and scarf that she thought I might like. During the 2012 Christmas holidays, she sent me a beautiful turquoise prayer beret and scarf.  I know the people are healed and their burdens made lighter by the love that Lucille puts into the making of her shawls, berets, and scarfs. It makes me proud and thankful to know her and to wear the beret and scarf she made especially for me. Thank you, Lucille.

She sent the beret and scarf to me to say “Thank You” for writing the poem and for writing my blog. Isn’t that sweet?

It was an incredible unique feeling to receive a card that had my poem in it. It touched my heart that she would go to all that trouble and spend the time to make them for me. Thank you, Lucille.

Thank you, Lucille for warming the hearts of God’s people. Thank you especially for warming my heart with the prayer beret and scarf you gave me.

Here’s a link to Lucille’s website: http://www.lucilleperkinsrobinson.com/

If you would like for Lucille to make a prayer beret and scarf for you for $26.00, let me know in a comment below or email Lucille at lu_perkins @ hotmail.com (without the spaces) for details.”

There are many unsung heroes who do things behind the lines for those who need comforting and healing. On behalf of all of us who reap the benefits of their help and prayers, I say “Thank You.” If you are in need of prayer and healing, pretend you are wearing a virtual beret and scarf similar to mine in your favorite color. I said a prayer for you right now.  May God heal you!

I Said a Prayer for You Today

I said a prayer for you today.
I know God heard it fine.

I prayed your fears disappear from view.
I prayed God’s love encompass you.
I prayed that peace be in your heart.
I prayed calm fill your day at start.

I said a prayer for you today.
I know God heard it fine.

I prayed you have the best of health.
I prayed you have abundant wealth.
I prayed love follow you near and far.
I prayed you realize the gift of God you are.

I said a prayer for you today.
I know God heard it fine.

I thanked God for sending you as my friend.
I prayed you know God loves you without end.

You saw the answer to my prayer.
I know you saw it fine.

You saw the beauty in the face of a child.
You saw the wonder of an animal in the wild.
You saw a mother protecting her young with her life.
You saw the unselfish husband providing for his wife.

You felt the answer to my prayer.
I know you felt it fine.

You felt God’s presence within you.
You felt God’s warmth in your heart and soul.
You felt God’s energy and power from above.
You felt confidence from God’s acceptance and love.

You tasted the answer to my prayer.
I know you tasted it fine.

You tasted the absence of hunger.
You tasted the hope of compassion.
You tasted the healing of forgiveness.
You tasted the guidance of wisdom.

You smelled the answer to my prayer.
I know you smelled it fine.

You smelled the scent of friendship.
You smelled the sweat of employment.
You smelled the leather of toughness.
You smelled the woods of safety.

You heard the answer to my prayer.
I know you heard it fine.

You heard the voice of the needy.
You heard the music of kindness.
You heard the cries of the lonely.
You heard the footsteps of courage.

You heard God whisper in your ear.
I know you heard him fine.
He said, “I love you, my dear child.
I’m glad that you are mine.”
