Thank you for the distractions that
sometimes make life tolerable
and that often make it enjoyable.
We need distractions for the sake
of our mental and emotional health.
We need them because fun
is fun and we need fun.
But never let us live for them because
they are never the main thing.
Never let us depend on them because
they are never the necessary thing.
Thank you for distractions, Lord.
Make us wise in the ways we use them.
Don’t let us ever abuse them.
