Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep...

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray to the Lord my soul to keep
Angels watch me through the night
and wake me with the morning light.
I love you Jesus, keep me safe & healthy. 

Her little voice and the sweetness of her words makes my heart so joy-filled.
I have been blessed by her.

How Do I Love Thee?

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, -- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! -- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
