A Prayer for Friday, July 17, 2015


O God,

Thank you for closure.

Thank you for the closing
of a chapter in the story.

Thank you also that a chapter
is never completely closed.

Thank you that we can revisit it
in our memories and in our dreams;
thank you that we might even be
able to return to its setting to see
how things are going for the
people who are still living there.

Thank you for the privilege of
having shared life with them
for a while; thank you that our
spirits will always be intertwined.

Thank you for a new chapter.

Thank you for how all that
has gone before prepares us
for what is yet to come.

Thank you for closure
that is not quite closure.

Thank you for moving on
and for looking back.

Thank you for completeness
and for incompleteness.

Thank you for “That’s that” and
for “Wait, there’s more …”
