a blessing for today



God bless those who are stuck inside on a beautiful day, open up vistas of peace within their dreams.

God bless those who really do not want to wake up today,  or get out of bed; may the strength and courage that moved the earth turn our bodies out onto the floor that is strong enough to bear our weight.

God bless those who have trouble staying awake during the meetings and tasks at hand, as people drone on and on, nudge them awake before it becomes too embarrassing.

God bless those who have been waiting for answers to prayers for so long it that it probably doesn’t matter anymore, make it matter again, and lift up our eyes to see that it was you who were always beside us.
