A hand-written sign at the top of a steep trail: “Happiness is an action, not a state of being. It is a journey, not a destination.”

Holy One,

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.

Alleluia! Amen.

Blessed be.
