- I liked the petitions in Scotty Smith’s prayer, “Nothing Could Be Finer”:
Fill the rest of my days with childlike-wonder, massive gratitude, Kingdom kindness, and a tenacious zeal to live, love, and serve to your glory.
Amen to that!
2. I liked—loved!—this quote by F. B. Meyer: “The love of God toward you is like the Amazon River flowing down to water a single daisy.” Amen to that too!
3. I liked William Martin’s poem, “Do Not Ask”:
“Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.”
