Today I asked for an answer to my prayers… and You gave redirection.
I asked for reassurance… and there was silence.
I asked for kindness… and my patience was tested.
I asked for action… and I practiced waiting.
I asked for understanding… and was given Grace upon Grace.
And now I rest and wait and listen… and I feel Your Presence, and Your Peace.
Thank you for journeying with me, even when I don’t know what to ask.

Thank you for naming, parsing (do we parse anymore?) the blessed contradictions of daily experience.
