Hello Joyce,

Thank you for the nice comment on "Another Spring,:

I was moved by your "Because I Believe." Very nice.

You seem to think like I do -- that a poet has a mission to jog minds, and open hearts...

This is certainly wonderful news, Joyce. It must have felt like a miracle had occurred when you walked into that classroom and discovered your prayers had been answered. Prayers do produce blessings---Thank God!

Joyce, I truly believe that Prayer brought these little boys home, they have been on my heart so heavy this past week. The tears of joy are running down my face as I write, I can imagine how their mother feels. This poem is written so beautifully and flows so naturally. I could just feel the excitement building as I knew it was about the boys, I know one fine lady that is walking around with a smile on her face today, right? (hugs for you!)

Blessings & Peace,
Linda Wells

I am reminded of the exhuberance of Rhoda when she answered the knock at the gate while the others continued to pray. She recognised Peter's voice, she did not need to look at his face; she knew it was him - an answer to prayer. She ran back to the praying group, but they said she was mad.
In other words, Joyce, your reaction to the boy's beaming smile was enough. As with Rhoda you knew prayer had been answered and in a remarkable way.

Thanks for sharing this testimony to the power of prayer.
