    At this moment, Lord, I come to you, frail, ill, so aware of my mortality, and full of knowledge of how small a speck I am in the face of an immense universe. And yet rather than despair, I instead remember a time you chose to become frail, vunerable, grieved, tortured, and executed by a miserable death for all the poor vunerable, sinful small specks that we are for love. Thank you Lord, for holding our hands when the days are dark. Let me offer all my fears and sorrows and suffering and pain on the altar of your love,...

    From the waters you rose and Heaven bent down to note the moment. Your being there blessed the waters with your perfect presence, O you who had no need to wash away life's stains, As you gave the waters their life-giving task of giving men new birth into your kingdom. Thank you Lord, for the channels of grace you open to us here on Earth.

    O Lord, on this day, do not fault us for wallowing in the whys that lead us down the roads we should not go, the whys which we use to destroy our faith, the whys we use to show our anger at events, the whys with which we blame you for the pain, the sorrow, the suffering the grief the death. O Lord, like spoiled or strong-willed children, Forgive us as we turn our back and choose not to see you walking beside us, weeping with us, feeling our pain, our anger, our loss. Forgive us when we forget that...

    Lord, This day when so much runs swirling around my head and my heart aches with unanswered issues, and I long for stability and health and peace, let me turn around and see you there, arms outstretched, waiting, ready to walk with me down this road, with its bumps, and ruts and sidings and obstacles each and every step of the way. Forgive me Lord, when I lose sight or turn away, distracted and forget that you are right here beside me. As you walked that long road to Calvary doing the Father's will, may I walk my own road,...
