We Are Contra

A  L  O  H  A !
If every prayer
was answered in a
predictable way
then it wouldn't
be a prayer.
It would be

a transaction.

 Someone said
that every prayer
is heard, and
is answered.
But sometimes
the answer is "No"
for our own good.

 Every day unnoticed
we are helped
in a million ways.
Still we get to
"do it ourselves" in
an enduring mystery
of our being.

We are mysterious beings
who are often quite 
Apparent contradictions
appear near the source
of great truths.

Linking to
Wild Bird Wednesday

Thank YOU
        Warmly, cloudia

Great Truths are not easily discovered, but there nonetheless.

Have a nice day, beginning with sunup, Cloudia.

Sometimes no is the best answer.

The bird drying its wings reminds me of one I saw here the other day doing the same.

Hello Cloudia!:) Two pretty images of the birds, and such beautiful quotes,... we don't always know what's best for us.
