Help me to look into the eyes
And to see the faces
Of those whose lives intersect mine today.
Catching a glimpse of the Holy
That I otherwise might miss in my haste.
Help me to pull into this passing moment
Those whom I love
In the sacredness of this moment.
Help me to remember
That each moment
Holds the potential for either good
Or tearing down.
May I chose wisely and well.
Help me be mindful of my own life.
Both fragile and strong.
Given to me this day as a gift.
That gratitude might weave its way through each moment.
Help me, O God.
