Mary Cassatt - Children Playing on the Beach, Fredric Chopin - Nocturne in E Flat Major, James Whitcomb Riley - The Prayer Perfect

Mary Cassatt painting today is a fun summer scene with two children playing at the beach.  From the cold midwest in January - this looks wonderful....

A lovely prayer poem today by James Whitcomb Riley
 The Prayer Perfect
Dear Lord! kind Lord!
Gracious Lord! I pray
Thou wilt look on all I love,
Tenderly to-day!
Weed their hearts of weariness;
Scatter every care
Down a wake of angel-wings
Winnowing the air.

Bring unto the sorrowing
All release from pain;
Let the lips of laughter
Overflow again;
And with all the needy
O divide, I pray,
This vast treasure of content
That is mine to-day!
