A Prayer For Oklahoma
River Red, and soil, and Indian brother before us: tawny is Thy canvas, Creator God, whereon by touch of light Thou hast daubed the blue-stem grass, rich black earth and white-tailed flash of deer.
Grant that they who sojourn in Oklahoma’s land may deserve Thy rainbowed blessing gilding the arch of heaven, and fish below, and every creature in his special mode of life.
Thine the painting, Lord; ours to pursue Thy beauty and truth in the various errands of our common cause. Amen

Love blooms in unlikely places in Janice Hanna’s Love Finds You in Daisy, Oklahoma.
It’s 1912. A tornado has left many homeless and Daisy’s orphanage needs help. Rena Jewel longs to do good and, as a lover of flowers, believes the letter from Daisy is a sign from God. Widowed Sheriff Gene Wyatt is struggling to control 23 unruly orphans—and his own two boys. When he learns that help is on the way, he rejoices—until he meets Rena, a far too gentle woman whom he assumes isn’t up to the challenge. But when Rena helps the children plant a garden, she begins to earn their respect.
The new orphanage director arrives just as the garden begins to bloom and Rena must decide if she can leave the town—and the people—she’s come to love.
