To the editor:
The following is a beautiful prayer/inspiration written by my 11-year-old granddaughter, Eva Hubbell, on Nov. 6, which will be inspiring and uplifting for your readers. Please feel free to use it in your publication.
God, today I was catching up on my Quest book when I looked out the window. The lights were off and for a moment everything suddenly fell silent. I put down my book and walked outside without a coat or shoes and was welcomed by a gorgeous blue, pink and orange sky. The blue was faint but combined the colors together nicely. The pink was soft and very light. And the orange was like putting together the last piece of the puzzle – fitting perfectly to create a beautiful picture.
Standing there on the wet ground my body felt numb, not because of how cold and gross the weather is, but because I was sucked into nature and had no room for anything but the beauty of my surroundings. I looked down to see the silhouette of a tree with its leaves falling from its branches. I was afraid to blink knowing that it could all be gone in a moment.
Sometimes living in such a cruel world can make us forget the beauty around us crowding out the inner beauty in each and every one of us. So, I ask that You’ll open the eyes of all to see the beauty of the world they live in. Allow for the blind to see and the deaf to hear the sounds of nature. I ask that You’ll help me and the rest of the world to share the beauty of the earth.
