Today my body calls on me to stop, to slow, to catch up.

Though I feel I am always behind, always trying to catch up with what I feel I should be doing.

Today may I try to forgive myself for not reaching those expectations.

Today may I take care of myself, be careful of the time and love and people given to me.

Today in rest may I return to the full sense of my created self.

Today may those who need it, forgive themselves.

Today may those who live careful lives, find the Spirit tickling them into joyful risk.

Today may those whose lives are in acceleration, enjoy a moment of stillness.

Today may those weeping, find healing in the flow of tears.

Today may those who long for an orderly catch up find themselves lovingly caught up in the creative chaos  of daily life.

May it be so. Amen.

Stopping the car, to capture something of the view across the fields from Claydon to Cropredy. A glimpse of yellow rapeseed fields in the distance.
