doing things with words and pictures
I do like a drab prayer, the only kind that would feel real at present.And this is indeed a fine one, though in my current feeble condition I'd be loth to give it a try for fear of cracking a rib. Possibly two.(Shall be leaving the spiritual vehemence to you young and hearty ones henceforth... perforce.)But the exit bit, now "at this stage of the game" -- odd expression really -- that part of the liturgy might prove less bother.
Praying daily, going over the same words, sometimes there's the spiritual vehemence, mostly feeling little more than the pull of a duty.Here's a prayer I've been hearing for as long as I can remember.
