Ragamuffin's prayer handbook

A friend sent me a praying hands book, it was a children's board book. I altered it to fit my life. Thank you, Sandy.I am from Eden, not the Garden of, on the right is a photo from the '50's of my downtown.
My Mother prayed for me. Brenda's Mother, Ruby.


Always, always loved books, could not imagine a world without them.


A prayer. This was written by my friend to be used as a part of her
"going home" celebration. The most beautiful closure of this life that
I have ever experienced. One of her gorgeous quilts covered her
going-home casket.

Brenda,
This is beautiful. I can see that it was heartfelt. Thank you for putting this on your blog. I love that I had a tiny part in your creativity. I remember you thought you had a plan for it and you followed through! That's much better than I would have done. Hooray for you.

Thank you Sandy and Pam. It still has a page to go, I looked for a praying hand book for years and Sandy had a couple, so she sent me one. That's what friends are for..............

It's wonderful. I still couldn't see much detail in Eden, but I can assume after your explanation. Your images are great. I have a few images that look like that, but they are blurry. Have you done any ancestral studies?
