Wide Open Eyes

(photo by Gayl Wright)

My prayer is that I will have
Wide open eyes to see more beauty,
slowing myself throughout the day,
giving closer attention
to everything around me,
especially the people I love.

Grace to be more thankful,
to voice my thanks daily,
learning to give thanks in
even in the midst of
the chaos of clutter,
family bickering,
hard times,
and scary times.

And when I fail,
to have courage to run to God
who is good and full of mercy,
knowing that with confession
there is always forgiveness.
