Our pastor had us write a prayer to God by putting Psalm 131 in our own words this morning. I'm giving you mine here. It isn't all that true to the psalm and I'm desperately resisting the urge to rewrite it and not show you the spontaneous 5 minute exercise, but…but…I realized on the way home it is the first thing I've ever created just for God. I hope he considers it as precious as I considered my childrens' first macaroni and glue crafts.
Father, I'm just trying to live my daily life.
I don't want to be Oprah or Angelina.
I don't need to be Stephen Hawking or CS Lewis.
I'm here in Denver, everyday,
Doing my job, raising my monkeys.
I am practicing coming to you.
I have found peace at the foot of my bed in prayer
and at Discount Tire, by surprise.
Oh Denver, relax and breathe.
Hope, Denver – always.
