NIGHT PRAYER: Monday 2/7

In the nooks and crannies,
    in the nitty-gritty,
in the comings and goings,
    of everyday life,
where vulnerability 
    yields to grace,
to your Spirit abounding,
    around and within:
just there, Lord,
    where intersects
your divinity 
    with my humanity,
in that sweet moment,
    all be well,
it's then I find you, Lord
   it's there I find my joy...

Protect me, Lord,
    awake, asleep
as I keep watch with joy
    and rest in your deep peace...

Simple Joy by Anna Molgard

Watching the sun ascend on the horizon
Filling the sky with warmth and light,
Seeing the rays now bursting out of darkness
From the stillness of the night,
Feeling the early morning's whisper
Brushing the shadows from my eyes,
Slowly I sense the quiet grandeur 
That suddenly feels like a surprise. 
Simple joy - quiet morning -
Gentle peace fills the air. 
When I sense simplicity's abundance, 
I simply know that God is there. 
Hearing the flowing sound of nature's presence 
Singing a song of sweet refrain, 
Listening for the whispers of my heartsong 
In the early morning rain,
Calling to me, the melodies of wonder 
Weaving a tapestry of sound, 
Listening carefully to hear the music 
Written wherever grace is found. 
Simple joy - quiet music 
Fills my soul, fills the air. 
When I sense simplicity's abundance,
I simply know that God is there. 
Suddenly seeing, buried in the garden,
Tiniest petals covering the earth,
Wondering how I ever missed their beauty 
Or ever wondered of their worth, 
Brilliantly blue, the hue that mirrors heaven, 
"Forget me not", they seem to cry.
Hidden among the orchids and the roses, 
Elegant beauty comes to life. 
Simple joy - quiet beauty - 
Gentle grace everywhere. 
As I sense simplicity's abundance, 
I simply know that God is there. 
I simply know that God is there.
