The harder part is people.
So Lord, help me face them
without rancor or disappointment.
Help me see the pain behind their actions
rather than the malice;
the suffering rather than the rage.
And in myself, as I struggle
with the vice of my own desire—-
give me strength to quiet my heart,
to quicken my empathy, to act
in gratitude rather than need.
Remind me that the peace I find
in the slow track of seasons
is married to the despair I feel
in the face of nuclear war.
Remind me that each small bird shares atoms
with anthrax, with tetanus, with acid rain, that each time I close my heart
to another, I add to the darkness,
Help me always follow kindness.
Let this be my prayer. ——Karen Holden
A very lovely and meaningful prayer. 🙂
Reblogged this on The ObamaCrat™.
thank you very much. Read your email, LOL.
Ok, off to read my e-mail….be right back.
I don’t have an e-mail from you….:oops:
Are the e-mail trolls attacking us?
Ok i resent it again and I sent another one. Let me know if you get either of them. Amy worked on it. Though she is perplexed and has almost 2 computer degrees. Gets the Computer Security one in Dec. I hope the trolls move on they are not making me happy.
