A Prayer Concerning Us

This day had an extremely hectic beginning, not the least of which involved some parenting-teenagers frustration...

Lord, in life’s leased appointments
Of laughter, loss and strife
Help us as we attend them
To live a humble life

This thoroughfare of learning
Sometimes seems harsh and cold
With welts beneath love’s yearning
That only You behold

But in joy’s surge to sorrow
Beneath its keening knife
Stir in each step pure fervor
To live a thankful life

We cannot know the future
It unfolds as Today
A carousel of moments
Sutured to Yesterday

Thus in this never-pausing
Out-pouring, pure and rife
With hope, instill a passion
To live a lovely life
