A Child's Book of Prayers

I have this little "Child's Book of Prayers" I wanted to share for Pink Saturday.  

 Here is the author and the illustrator is Masha.  Little is know about the illustrator, she/he is sort of a mystery but the illustrations are why this book appeals to me so.

The illustrations have these very unusual ethereal colors and the candles or the halos have a gilding on them that shimmer.
The colors are softer and faded but they remind me of the unusual colors you see during a beautiful sunset.  
This illustration went with a prayer of thanks.  
Father , We Thank Thee...
For this new morning with it's light,
Father, we thank Thee,
For rest and shelter of the night,
Father, we thank Thee,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything thy goodness sends, 
Father in heaven, we thank Thee.
 ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I will join Beverly for Pink Saturday at her site How Sweet the Sound.

 I will join Joni at Red Couch Recipes for the Thanksgiving Challenge.  I will put at the end of every post till Thanksgiving what I am thankful for.  I am thankful for the color pink.  It is my favorite color!  It is said to symbolize joy and happiness.  It makes me happy to look at it.  That is why I choose these pink roses for my button.
