Artful treatment works well with this scene, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ray.
I run for the bus, dear
While riding I think of us, dear
I say a little prayer for you
At work I just take time
And all through my coffee break time
I say a little prayer for you.

Ginnie Hart: Ohhh, how beautiful, Michael. Thanks for sharing this!
Very sweet, Ginnie. Lovingly processed.
I love the song Michael quotes... though I'm more familiar with Dionne Warwick's version.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. I'm familiar with one of the songs but can't tell you whose it is. smile

This is so beautiful. The serenity here. Great treatment for the scene. Love it. Wonderful poem indeed.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. A lot of people need our prayers these days, everywhere!
Seems like a personal recollection.
Ginnie Hart: Maybe so, Michael.

I like to light a candle, too
Ginnie Hart: I starting to do so myself, Lisl. Thank you.
There is probably a lot of praying going on at the moment

I like the picture
Ginnie Hart: I sure hope so, Bill. And thank you.

I sometimes light on a candle when I visit a church. A fine image!
Ginnie Hart: I'm starting to do so, too, Philine. It's becoming a soulful "ritual," even though I didn't grow up with it.

I'm sure that it brings a lot of comfort to many people. If I visit a church and see people in prayer, I keep well out of their way to give them their space.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Alan, I'm sure...even though I didn't grow up with the practice (with candles, that is). I was glad my camera was able to pick up this scene from far away!
There is always plenty to pray for Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, there is, Chad. (sigh)

Un joli traitement
JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
i pretty much pray all day and all night haha, gots lots to talk about with God smile this is a very sweet picture, i just tried to call you coz i have a 2 minute message, but you didn't answer... is tomorrow our day?
Ginnie Hart: Long ago I made the connection that most of my thoughts are prayers, Elaine. That helops me understand that I, too, am praying "all the time." (Tomorrow is NOT our day...next week. Maybe you can write down your message?)
It never hurts to do that.
Ginnie Hart: Never!

Nice shot!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Anne.
A very fine image Ginnie, it has captured this lady about to partake in a very important few moments of her day no doubt.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian. I was far away when I saw her but was glad my camera was able to zoom in on her.
Another nice treatment, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Tom.
Join me~"I Say A Little Prayer"
OK, you can do the background vocals. wink
Ginnie Hart: I'll gladly do the background vocals, LC. Now, belt it out! smile

Beautiful smile I loved my visits to the many churches in Leuven smile
Ginnie Hart: It was because of YOU, Cherry, that we decided to go there, so thank you! smile
There is no end of prayer needed..
Ginnie Hart: You've got that right, Larry!

She's darling...I love her shoes. Yes, we need all the prayers we can get!!!
Ginnie Hart: More European you cannot get (in that look), Robin. And yes, let's keep praying.
