For a Birthday

from The Book of Common Prayer

Watch over thy child, O Lord, as her days increase, bless and guide her wherever she may be. Strengthen her when she stands; comfort her when discouraged or sorrowful; raise her up if she fall; and in her heart may thy peace which passeth understanding abide all the days of her life; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

What a beautiful prayer. Is/was it someone's birthday in your family?

Friday we had a birthday, and yesterday was the party. :-) Lots of little girls at the house.
