Lent 14

I pause to breathe
to stop
to see
to pray


This is the day that the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.



Thank you for a few moments of quiet.
(breathe)
Thank you for choices,
the luxury of having options.

(stop)
Thank you for sunlight.
(see)
Thank you for family,
for friendships.

(pray)


This is the day that the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.



You alone are God; your presence knows no bounds.
(breathe)
How limited my worldview,
how narrowly-focused are my days!

(stop)
How many people are walking in this day, counting
their footsteps carefully; so many...
and I barely know my neighbor!

(see)
Do not let me forget that we are not islands.
Stretch me in community, by your Spirit.

(pray)


This is the day that the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.



I pause to breathe
to stop
to see
to pray
