We can get caught up in the rush and hubbub of the week and we may forget about what’s important in Life. Here’s a poem that reminds us:
A Prayer by Edgar A. Guest
God grant me these: the strength to do
Some needed service here;
The wisdom to be brave and true;
The gift of vision clear,
That in each task that comes to me
Some purpose I may plainly see.
God teach me to believe that I
Am stationed at a post,
Although the humblest ‘neath the sky,
When I am needed most.
And, that, at last, if I do well
My humble services will tell.
God grant me faith to stand on guard,
Uncheered, unspoken, alone,
And see behind such duty hard
My service to the throne.
Whate’er my task, be this my creed:
I am on earth to fill a need.
Your Friend and Pep Pal,
