A Prayer

Please give me eyes to see you
In the midst of fingerprinted days
Sticky floors
Peanut butter and jelly lunches
Loads of laundry
Diaper changes
Millions of questions
From things under the sea
To things that fly in the sky

I want the gift
The gift of joy in the mundane
The gift of laughter in chaos
The gift of rest in business
The gift of restoration when I'm tired
The gift to enjoy this moment

Fill my sails with the Holy Spirit
So my cup won't be full
But so it will overflow
Spilling into all my relationships
Sending me out in joy
Leading me forth in peace
