Evening Prayer June 7
Where does patience come from and how does it flower? How is it I find myself praying for patience when I have so little, praying for peace when I am in turmoil, praying for what it is I imagine will hold me until the dawn? Let me breathe and in that breath find enoughness for now, the next breath leading me on. All questions cannot be answered right this minute, and today’s may need to wait for many tomorrows or many generations. Let me breathe in that breath and know enoughness. Love knows my imperfections, my being in progress and what I haven’t started upon yet and still. Let me breathe in that breath and know right now is enough. Slowly, slowly patience grows, peace fruits from the land, hope holds us from one dawn to the next. Let me breathe and my breath join all those others of people hoping and wishing and yearning what is not just yet. Let us breathe in and meet the heart of Love, breathe and join together in our enoughness. Amen.
