ADVENT PRAYER

I am aware, of course, that this is not Advent, but Lent is also a period of expectancy and waiting, and this is a short prayer geared towards the "old and bare".

                                          Today
we walked in the woods...
and the trees were dark
and their branches were bare.
I put my arms around a tree
and listened
and I could hear the tree,
inside,
living,
waiting,
for the time when God
will bring it back to green. Do
you do that for us, too, Lord,
when we grow old and bare?

By Madeleine L’Engle, Anytime Prayers

Hugging a tree is never a bad thing! :o)
