Say a Little Prayer

 

For all people everywhere, near or far, who need hope and peace! 

(Our B&B hostess asked us to light a candle for her when we visited a church last week because she needed a new job.  

We did, at the Sint Marten church, Sint Truiden, Belgium)

Amen to that.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Michael.
... Lovely, Ginnie. And an apt image for Pearl Harbor day
Ginnie Hart: I had forgotten it was Pearl Harbor Day, so, yes, most apt! Thank you.

Full of promise! What a sweet gesture.
Ginnie Hart: I have grown quite accustomed to taking photos of the catholic church prayer candles all over Europe, Bonnie, but this may be the first time I lit one before taking its picture.
Quelle jolie lumière !
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martine.

Sometimes all you need is this little light in the 'dark days'...
I am happy the B&B hostess could continue working at the same place.
Great picture, love the warm light.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. In this case, our prayers worked and I'm so happy we could do this for her. I love taking photos of these church candles, as you know, but rarely ever light one myself, so this was different...on another level.
Standing Rock, for one.
Ginnie Hart: Absolutely, Michael. I have a feeling that one's not "finished" yet!

I always light a candle when they are available in churches, Ginnie - there is always something or someone to light one for
Ginnie Hart: I may start doing that more often, Lisl, because it was very meaningful this time. Thank you.

This is a wondefrul, warm image, and I am sure your hostess will get a new job.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine. In fact, our hostess had a new contact by the time we got home that day and was ready to start her new job this past Monday, the day she needed it.
The way the world is at the moment we need all the candles lit we can get!
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Bill! Let's start lighting them....
That is a lovely request Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: More important today, maybe, than ever?
Did she give you special discount for your B&B stay? wink
Ginnie Hart: HA! No, but we got plenty of perks from her...like allowing us to treat the entire place like it was OUR home. That was nice!
awww, sweet of you... i wonder where that tradition came from, lighting a candle as a prayer... this is a LOVELY picture btw...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elaine. I don't know but I'm sure it goes way back in the Roman Catholic tradition, which I did not grow up with, as you know.
Will do, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary.
belle image!! lueur d'espoir!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Glimmer of hope, indeed, JP. I like that thought.

There is always something poignant in seeing these little lights in a church.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Anne. I am always moved towards them!
Beautiful... lots of extra faith is needed for so many indeed. I said a little prayer too.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, Jacquelyn. We need a gigantic ripple effect of prayers all around the world.
I can't think of any better way of spending a few minutes.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Brian, especially in this day and age.
This is lovely Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Charles.

I light a candle for different reasons when I visit a church. The most important thing is that we light a candle when we visit smile
Ginnie Hart: I'm beginning to feel the urge to do it every time, Cherry. Thank you. And yes, for different reason....

Ils en ont bien besoin
JP
Ginnie Hart: Yes, JP.
a fine shot for your sentiment, Ginnie. we all could do with more prayers.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. Yes, indeed.
those candles cover a lot of wishes, fears, and gratitude...
Ginnie Hart: Yes, they do, Larry. (sigh)
I too will light a candle regardless of the part of the world I'm in...there's always someone that could use some sunshine. Beautiful.
Ginnie Hart: It's beginning to make more and more sense, Robin, because of the symbolism!
