Mirror Mirror, by Bronwynne Cornish   (Photo taken at the Dowse Gallery, Lower Hutt, New Zealand)

 

Between the alarm and our to-do list: your blessing

Between the mirror and our reflection: your delight

Between the keyboard and our fingers: your wisdom

Between the tools we hold (knife, scissors, paintbrush, needle) and our hands: your creativity

Between those we care for and our efforts: your grace

Between the fork and our plate: your providence

Between the pillow and our head: your peace.  Amen.
