Evening Prayer – 12 April 2018

April 12, 2018

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

Another day of rest, reflection, renewal

We spend a portion of today at an old cemetery

Reflecting upon life and death

This grave seems to say

Life can be messy, but grace is present

When all else fails, throw a party!

I think of my dear brother, Jeff

These words from his book

My spiritual house is in order

But I can’t get enough of the woods, the birds, and the creation

I talk to every monk at a couple of monasteries who is willing to listen

The monks talk about what matters

Maybe it is because they live close to the earth

We are all untidy pilgrims in this life

We are all untidy pilgrims on Grace Street

Yet in the midst of it all, we are reminded

We are God’s precious children

We are loved, forgiven, redeemed

As the sun sets I remember Jeff’s words

We are all pilgrims on Grace Street

Lord, thank you for your grace in the messiness of life

Lord, thank you for your love

Lord, in your mercy, hear this prayer for each of us

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
