Let us glance backward occasionally
so we can understand how
the past has helped to shape us.
Let us glace forward occasionally
so we can catch a glimpse of your future
and have our hope renewed.
Let us glance around enough
to notice opportunities,
to recognize obstacles, and
to gain perspective.
Let our glances backward, forward, and around
be a part of our keeping our eyes focused on you and
on our commitment to following you, trusting you,
and serving you in all things.
Let us have singleness of vision;
let our glances always be related to it …
