Pause for Prayer: TUESDAY 2/15

In the future final week, Lord, 
I used to be watching some kids
having a very good time collectively:
nothing particular or out of the atypical,
simply kids enjoying collectively,
children having fun with being children,
as solely children can do…

I puzzled, Lord,
    would they keep in mind the enjoyment of that second
    tomorrow…  subsequent week or subsequent month…
    subsequent yr or years from now…

And I requested myself:
    what number of moments of carefree play
        have I recognized -but lengthy since forgotten?
What number of peaceable instances
    are filed deep in my reminiscences, Lord, 
        not misplaced however now past my attain?
What number of joyful moments,
    now embedded, hidden in my coronary heart,
        have made me who I’m?

So usually, Lord, I keep in mind my troubles
    however neglect what made me completely happy;
 my sorrows possess me,
    whereas pleasure slips via my fingers…

My childhood was way back
     so assist me keep in mind, Lord, 
assist me belief the enjoyment  
    of playful moments I’ve forgotten
and all of the instances all through my life
    when peace has dominated my coronary heart,
    when pleasure has healed my sorrow,
    when grace has touched my soul…
Assist me plumb once more the depths
    of all of the blessings, all the thrill,
        remembered and forgotten,
    which have made me who I’m,
    that stay inside me now,
    that give me hope in you
        from whom all joys and blessings circulate…
