“It is a good thing to let prayer be the first business of the morning and the last at night.” - Martin Luther
I'm trying, Lord. Oh, I'm trying.
To refocus. To slow down. To reflect and ponder all the many, many blessings that are mine everyday. Ordinary miracles.
The drop in temperature at the eventide.
The happy chatter of birds high in the trees.
Breathing deeply of fresh summer air.
A leisurely bike ride to retrieve a little one from Grampa's house.
Guests who leave my table stuffed and happy.
The wonder in a young boy's eyes as he rolls out his first homemade bread dough.
New neighbors who call on the name of the Lord.
Finding raw milk cheese.
The surprise delight of peach nectar in my fridge.
