Lent 31

Help this oak tree of a soul, Living Spirit:
see where I am knotted and hunched,
where I am trimmed short by wounds,
how I have stretched out for the sun
yet again turned away from exposure;
know the hollowed out and dying places
also the deep yearning of my heart's roots.
Heal the woodenness that hinders self-grace.
Free my spirit to extend with unrestrained love!
