my prayer today:

Lord, do not let me be a resounding gong,
a clanging cymbal
to my world,
to my children.

may i approach everyone
with the grace
that i myself do not deserve.

Lord, allow me to glimpse
the people around me today
with the eyes You long for me to have.

give me love.
and only love.
so that i might love
those i deem unlovable,
even if "those"
includes me.
