Give us Lord, a bit o' sun,
A bit o' work and a bit o' fun;
Give us all in the struggle and sputter
Our daily bread and a bit o' butter.

Lives of Balance
I found a prayer book while scavenging at Goodwill this week. It caught my eye because as I flipped through it, there were prayers from Anne Bradstreet, John Donne, Peter Marshall and many other spiritual giants; I love those. However, the prayer that kept returning is unclaimed. This funny little prayer not only leaves me chuckling, but brings me back to Center-God is in and through all and in Him all things hold together. He calls us to lives of balance.
