A Prayer of Confession

A Prayer of Confession

 

Forgive us Lord,

For not gazing with gratitude

Upon the dandelion,

Whose beauty is no less

stately than the rose;

Dancing on a dilapidated lawn

beside the ramshackle home,

Dazzling us with her sunfire shine,

Reminding us that no overlooked corner,

no overworn space

is incapable of being touched by grace.

  1. Hi Jed,

    Beauty in the simple things. May we not be too busy to miss those whispers from the Lord.

    Let’s catch up soon,
