Baseball

Dear God,

The Men’s College World Series in baseball is a good diversion.  I have surprised myself with enjoying sports in recent years.  And my team is winning, always a welcome attraction!

Keep me living and working with a good mix of activities.  You don’t want drudges.  Life is meant to be enjoyed, even as we take on challenges.

Thank You for guiding me to a good life.

Amen.

Rest

Dear God,

Sometimes just rest is called for. I finished up a large writing project four months ago, and I have needed some time off from writing. All of us have reasons to take it easy from time to time. I appreciate that Julia Cameron expressed these ideas in one of her books.

And You are here for me, giving me permission to play and have some fun–diversion from work, and a welcome diversion such activities are. Thank You for knowing when I have reached my limit, and stopping me by giving me resistance to forging ahead.

Amen.
