Afternoon Prayer

Updated on December 18, 2012

Midday pause

Morning reflection

A time to express gratitude

For nourishment and rest

Too often we hurry

Scurry like ants

An hour is precious

Like a grain of sand

Time is a gift

A present often squandered

Wasted on minutia

When the world can wait

Take time and reflect

On what He has done

See the majesty of Creation

The world is good

And God is great.

      All I can add to this is Amen...Twenty four/seven communication with our Lord keeps us grounded and centered and connected. This was lovely---such carefully chosen words to express a message of calm and peace. Thank you

      Sending Angels your way...:) ps
