Help, Thanks, Wow

Anne Lamott, in her characteristic funny and insightful way, provides us with three essential prayers “asking for assistance, appreciating the good we witness, and feeling awe at the world.” Sure, much of what she describes is familiar, but it is the way she reminds us that becomes a tonic that you need to take on a regular basis. Here is your first dose – “Light reveals us to ourselves, which is not always so great if you find yourself in a big disgusting mess, possibly of your own creation. But like sunflowers we turn toward light. Light warms, and in most cases it draws us to itself. And in this light, we can see beyond shadow and illusion to something beyond our modest receptors, to what is way beyond us, and deep inside.”
