As always, my to-do list
is far too long
with groceries to buy,
the house to clean,
and yard work to do.
Please help me keep
these tasks in perspective.
I’m in danger of reducing my life
to a daily check list.
Help me draw on your serenity,
so that I can remember
that we gather together
for more than food,
that no one is checking
to see if the house has been dusted.
With these things in mind,
I can focus on You,
and through You,
on those with whom
I share this special day.
