Thank you for those times when we get to stop and take a breath and reflect a bit.
Often when we get such a chance we realize that we have not been in the course of our busy lives paying enough attention to your presence, to your love, to your grace, and to your guidance.
Thank you for giving them to us even when we are not paying attention.
But help us to learn from those moments when we do stop and think about you to pay more conscious attention to you all the time; help us to learn to be alert to your gracious presence and direction.
Help us to grow toward a constant and active awareness of you …
