Dear Friends, this isn’t my typical Sunday blog post but have been traveling and got behind in my writing. Then today I stumbled across this lovely prayer that touched my heart. Perhaps it will resonate with you too. Blessings!
Dear God, I cannot love Thee the way I want to.
You are the slim crescent of a moon that I see and myself is the earth’s shadow that keeps me from seeing all the moon.
The crescent is very beautiful and perhaps that is all one like I am should or could see;
but what I am afraid of, dear God, is that my self shadow will grow so large that it blocks the whole moon, and that I will judge myself by the shadow that is nothing.
I do not know you God because I am in the way.
Please help me to push myself aside.
