Grace Upon Grace,

The parties are over.

Today we put
pen to paper or
fingers to keyboard or
stylus to screen.

We are making lists
of resolutions
of long-deferred errands and chores
of 2016 events that now need attention.

Just for a moment, Morningstar,
lift our heads from our lists this day.
Just for a moment, help us to see
list-less-ness not as sloth
but as free fall
into Your
measureless,
unquantifiable
glory.

Amen.

  1. Was given The Book by a congregant who knew I was feeling a bit isolated and lonely as a woman pastor. Which led me to this. Joy and thanks for God’s constant movement through our lives.
