Priorities

I miss them all the time, sunrises and sunsets, sparkling moments that happen once, and then are lost forever. Life is too full of stuff that keeps me from seeing the beauty of special times. I can’t help but think that God is sad about that, sad that I have set priorities that cause me to miss holy times.

I would like to change some of those out-of-whack priorities. I would like to spend more sunrises and sunsets drawing nearer to God and finding my heart of prayer. I would like to melt into a place of serenity and meditation. I would like to spend a few minutes of sheer tranquility.

It’s my own choice, really, my decision to make. So I think I’ll take some sage advice from Jo Walton:

“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.”
