Prayer

It  been a mite heavy round these parts lately (believe me- this is just a blog- you should see how heavy things are inside my head right now). So here is a lovely prayer that stays just on the right side of twee:-

 ‘Only Remember’

I shall not pray to God for you

for what I think you would

like to have, or ought to have,

of gain or grace or good;

or even for your current dream,

however absolute

lest time should prove we both had begged

for you a bitter fruit . . .

only remember you with love

without the least request;

and God, who loves you more than I,

will do for you what’s best.

Ruth Van Gorder
