Blue Ombre Birthday Cake

A Mother's Prayer

I pray YOU'll be my eyes
And watch her where she goes
And help her to be wise
Help me to let go

Every mother's prayer
Every child knows
Lead her to a place
Guide her with YOUR grace
To a place where she'll be safe

I pray she finds YOUR light
And holds it in her heart
As darkness falls each night
Remind her where YOU are

Every mother's prayer
Every child knows
Need to find a place
Guide her with YOUR grace
Give her faith so she'll be safe

Lead her to a place
Guide her with YOUR grace
To a place where she'll be safe

رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا   لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا
Rabbanaa hab lanaa min azwaajina wa dhuriyyaatinaa qurrata A’yunin waj’alnaa lil- muttaqina imaama
Our Lord! Give us from our spouses and our children, who will be the comfort of our eyes and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous (25:74)

  11. Hi Lisa,

    No worries, gal! The photo of your beautiful cake speaks more than a poem or sings better than Celine Dion. I'm sure your little girl appreciate your good intention :D
