God in the midst, come close to us, and help us to come close to you, as, for a fraction of time, we step back from the activities of the day. May we treasure such moments with you. Moments when we can bring to you the things we are doing, and find new meaning for them, and new strength for doing them. And moments for recalling how we are meeting you already, in the stuff of daily living and engagement, when faith is tested and compassion is translated into action. So if, as the day goes on, we forget you. Do not forget us, O God. AMEN!
May our hearts be open to recognize the presence of the Divine about us in all things and may we delight in the unexpected blessings God shares with us in the coming week!
