Polworth’s prayer

“‘O Father of life,’ he prayed, ‘we praise you that you will one day take your poor crooked creatures and give them bodies like Christ’s, perfect and full of light. Help us to grow faster–as fast as you can help us grow. Help us to keep our eyes on the opening of your hand, that we may know the manna when it comes. We rejoice that we are your making, though your handiwork is not very plain yet in the outer man. We bless you that we feel your hand making us, even if what we feel be pain.  Always we hear the voice of the potter above the hum and grind of the wheel. Fashion the clay to your will. You have made us love you and hope in you, and in your love we will be brave and endure. All in good time, O Lord. Amen.”

The Lady’s Confession, George MacDonald

Nest abandoned when we sprayed a nearby wasp nest. Note the tiny green shoots.  Life goes on.
