Flying

Steadfast God, Ever-Moving Spirit,
I pray for a change in perspective

and the ability to delight in
a single moment as I might
delight in one snapshot shape
of a shifting cloud:

to see time as a gift,
not a battle;

to breathe with purpose,
not just for survival;

to believe in the process
(not only the end goal)
of healing;

to sing always
as part of the whole chorus;

to shift my gaze from the sidewalk
to the horizon;

to know -- and learn to appreciate --
that more (much more!) of life
is beyond my control
than is in it.
