prayer for summer 2013



While classes have been over for a bit, I'm on the cusp of "just summer" as I close the book on my last task of the school year with my friend/writing buddy/colleague.  I'll still have work to do, but here is my prayer for summer 2013.

Less grading. . . More poetry. 
Less lunch at my desk . . . More picnics. 
Less TV. . . More campfires. 
Less pictures. . . More memories. 
Less running around. . . More napping with my one-year-old. 
Less things. . . More people. 
Less list making. . . More song making. 
Less e-mail. . . More letters. 
Less coffee in the car . . . More beer on the deck. 
Less devotions. . . More Bible. 
Less me-focus. . . More others-focus. 
Less computer. . . More stories. 
Less worry is me. . . More calling is me. 
Less fear. . . More strength. 
Less anxiety. . . More contentment. 
Less "just get through". . . More "embrace today with hope and joy".
Less doing . . . More being. 
Amen.
