a note to God:
It’s a New Year. The last one flew by faster than the previous ten, and much faster than the twenty before that. The first thirty—well, they seemed to meander slowly; like a lazy river taking its time, enjoying the scenery. I know, that as we have more experience of human life, our perception of time changes. I know, too, that on the spirit side, time—or what we mere mortals call time—will be substantially different, if we’re even aware of it.
So, at the beginning of my sixtieth year of earthly life, I want to stop the days (and months and years) from speeding by. I desire to be aware and peace-filled and joy-full more. I aspire to slow down and create meaningfulness—times full of meaning.
As I evaluate who I am, I realize that my desire is for my life to be a prayer to you. Not a prayer of “why can’t I?” or “I want” or “I need” or I’m in pain”. Rather, a prayer of thanks, compassion, acceptance, and understanding. I’ve not always been good at that, so I’ll need your help.
I desire to be a change agent, even if in an infinitesimally small way, who leaves a footprint sprinkled with hope. I truly want to look into each fellow human’s eyes and see you.
I yearn to chase my dreams, live into the moments, and honor all whose lives I touch. Please give me the grace to make it so,
Please help spread the word of peace full home™/intentional living.
