Choices, Part 5
Help us to choose wisely between expectancy and wonder. Give us the perspective that makes all the difference.
Guard us against expecting things to happen because expectation implies that we think we know or should know what is going to happen or what should happen. Then when things don’t go as we expect we are disappointed or angry even though we really had no way of knowing how things would go.
Help us instead to wonder what will happen. Help us to live with minds pointed with a wide open stance toward the future. Help us to wonder but not to fear. Help us to live with a sense of wonder and awe over what lies before us. Help us to live in trust.
