• “Do not lose yourself in your everyday work and activities. Rather, lose yourself in God. When you are doing work, let your innermost heart be centered on Him. Live in His presence and abide in Him. Then your work will follow you into eternity, and you will reap a rich harvest.” – Basilea Schlink

    My Grandmother taught me this prayer when I was a child. My Grandmother was born in 1918-89 I was born in 1963. Thou hast clothed me, warmed and fed me; listen to my evening prayer. 3. Let my debts be all forgiven; This is the only thing different about the prayer I learned as a child. (Thou has clothed, Warmth and fed me.) and (Let my sins be all forgiven) I love this prayer and now it has more meaning. It's always been special to me.
