Your Dying Spouse 655 - Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

If you're going to pray, pray big.

Now I lay me down to sleep
(and I've got a little list),
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
(so herewith is the gist).
Please watch over dogs and cat
and to avoid any marital strife,
I probably should advise You that
you should keep an eye on Wife.
Please prosper my writing friends;
they've such a thankless task.
(If you wonder if this ever ends,
I've got much more to ask.)
You'll get an appendix, everything on it,
'cause I am now at 'end of sonnet'.

Music from Montell Jordan and Beckah Shae, with Shake Heaven.

Thanks to Carol Ashby, Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart is back on Kindle, and will be available in paperback soon.

Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.

Marley, the canine waif from Afghanistan, whom WE helped save, has a Facebook page! Please drop by to see how happy he is today.

Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.
