All are sleeping, cool quiet house and coffee in hand, I pause to pray.
Lord, help me; help us to love one another…to love well. Remind me to start with love, thinking of the great writer, Og Mandino’s words, how love sees everything, frames the perspective of everything from the beginning.
Help me not to strive to be the fixer of all, the holder together of all and the keep the peacer of all.
Help me to notice You today.
Remind me to pause to remember all the sweet and powerful answers to my prayers, your hearing and your replies and your goodness in my life.
Help me notice others in a way that is more attentive to hearts, to vulnerability and to need.
And then strengthen my compassion and my empathy so that I know clearly “but for the grace of God…” or just a reminder, not sad just memory of a time I might have been similarly downhearted.
Dear Lord, help us to love one another. May our hearts be light and our time be joyful.
Thank you for laughter.
We look forward to more silly, more funny and fun.
We love you Lord, our souls rejoice.
Thank you for the beauty of our earth.
Because of mercy, I pray
in Jesus name,
