Living Grace-fully

Let Me Live Grace-fully                                                                    

Thank you, Lord,                                                                                       

   for this season
     of sun and slow motion,
       of games and porch sitting,
         of picnics and light green fireflies
           on heavy purple evenings.
             and praise for slight breezes.
               It’s good, God,
                 as the first long days of your creation.

Let this season be for me
   a time of gathering together the pieces
     into which my busyness has broken me.
      O God, enable me now                                                                           
         to grow wise through reflection,                                                                 
          peaceful through the song of the cricket,
            recreated through the laughter of play.                                   

Most of all, Lord,                                                      
  let me live easily and grace-fully for a spell,                                                      
   so that I may see other souls deeply,
     share in a silence unhumed,
      listen to the sound of sunlight and shadows,
       explore barefoot the land of forgotten dreams and shy hopes,
         and find the right words to tell another who I am.
