Meditation by Gordon B. McKeeman
For simple things that are not simple at all
For miracles of the common way...
For Grace that turns
our intentions into deeds
our compassion into helpfulness
our pain into mercy
For Providence that
sustains and supports our needs
We lift our hearts in thankfulness
and pray only to be more aware
and thus more alive.
—Gordon B. McKeeman
