Father, Creator of all, thank you for summer!
Thank you for the warmth of the sun and the increased daylight.
Thank you for the beauty I see all around me
          and for the opportunity to be outside and enjoy your creation.
Thank you for the increased time I have to be with my friends and family,
          and for the more casual pace of the summer season.
Draw me closer to you this summer.
Teach me how I can pray no matter where I am or what I am doing.
Warm my soul with the awareness of your presence 
          and light my path with your word and counsel.
As I enjoy your creation,
      create in me a pure heart and hunger and a thirst for you. Amen.

A Prayer for Lenten Simplicity

Tuesday, January 6, 2015 11:12 AM
Tuesday, January 6, 2015 11:12 AM

Free me, Lord Jesus from anything that obstructs my way to you.  Clear away the clutter of petty grudges.  Remove smudges of resentment and bitterness.  Cleanse me of thoughts filled with anger, envy, or self-pity.


Create space in my life for more kindness and less spitefulness, greater generosity and few self-centered needs, stronger compassion and weakened judgment of others.


Enlarge my heart with a spirit of gratitude this Lent, so that I recognize the simple gifts that lay in abundance all around me.


In your sacred name, I pray.  Amen.

This Is The Day!

Life Everywhere

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. – Psalm 118:24


The beginning of winter is a time when we yearn for the brighter days of fall.  As we go for walks, we remember the warmer wind and the green ground signaling life.  But in the gray days of winter as snow falls, we sometimes forget about the life that is still ever present around us, buried beneath the snow.

This passage from the psalmist calls us to remember that in each day the Lord has made there is much for us to appreciate.  Even in the darker days of winter, we can still find new life.  God has blessed us with new life all around from the crocuses growing in the snow to the sound of the birds searching for food to eat.  We just need to take time to search for the new life that is hidden from our sight.


Action Step:  Go for a walk and search for something that makes you glad today.

God, help me to see something to rejoice in each day.  Amen
