Can you give thanks for the process of change today?
Who’s on your heart today? Who are you praying for?
For whom, for what, for where are you praying today?
Where do you pray for justice & peace today?
Take a bit longer today to pause. pray. reflect.
Remember to pray for yourself, too.
by e. e. cummings
little silent Christmas tree
you are so little
you are more like a flower
who found you in the green forest
and were you very sorry to come away?
see i will comfort you
because you smell so sweetly
i will kiss your cool bark
and hug you safe and right
just as your mother would,
only don’t be afraid
look the spangles
that sleep all the year in a dark box
dreaming of being taken out and allowed to shine,
the balls the chains red and gold the fluffy threads,
put up your little arms
and i’ll give them all to you to hold
every finger shall have its ring
and there won’t be a single place dark or unhappy
then when you’re quite dressed
you’ll stand in the window for everyone to see
and how they’ll stare!
oh but you’ll be very proud
and my little sister and I will take hands
and looking up at our beautiful tree
we’ll dance and sing
What are you thankful for today?
Who’s knocking on the doors of your heart today?
Who’s on your heart today? What’s your prayer?
Where do you pray to see justice and peace done today?
