Friday's Child

Friday's Child does not refer to the Star Trek episode of the same name - rather it is a misrepresentation of a poem called Monday's Child.  It was written as a way of helping children learn the names of the days of the week.  Each day was given a character or quality - thus some may refer to the poem as Monday's Child, Tuesday's Child and so on.  It is interesting to note that Friday is described as "Friday's child is loving and giving".  We could only hope that all of us would be a Friday's child -willingly sharing what we have with others as well as our love.  Too many people close their ears - shut their eyes - turn their heads - to the needs of others. 
God knows what each of us needs - when we need it - where we need it.  He is attuned to us and the world around us.  He knows what we wish and hope for - our hearts desire - what we think we need and what we really need.  When you ask God for blessings - help - grace - always add to you prayer - according to Your Will.  God will give you exactly what you need - when you need it - in His time.
