Distraction from Knowing

Reflections for contemplative living

Distraction takes me off the path of knowing You and knowing myself in You. 

Today I ask You to draw me to notice the little things: 

The call of a bird, the gentle sway of the trees, the care and love of my husband, the breath filling my lungs, the free movement in my body. Savoring the gift of another day. A day for being loved, and to give love.

You count the number of stars and call each one by name. Grant me the humility to notice the details of my life with love. 

Thank you, Lord, for helping me focus on the simple things that help me know and understand love.
