  1. These prayers came to me when I needed them the most. No therapist, no headshrinker, and no death medications can do more than a quiet walk with God. Standing tall in the warmth and light of the Sun, what troubles I have are breathed in and then burned away as I breathe out.

    This is a wonderful and peace bringing article. I had worried myself on being lonely but now I do sit still alone, but I am in solitude with the light. Thank you
