A Prayer For Tonight...

.:Still On A High From APO...:.

Will write about it when I have pictures to gank from Achie Rochelle. It's the one thing that really made this weekend well worth it. Single Awareness Day was lousy, as can be expected.

.:You Oughta Know:.

I want you to know, I'm happy for you. I wish nothing but the best for you both...

.:A Prayer For Disturbance...:.

In a time of complacency, I ask to be dared to go beyond my limits. In a time of self-assuredness, I ask for self-doubt onwards to self-actualization. I don't ask for solutions to my woes. I merely ask for opportunities to better myself through my God-given means.

Disturb Us, O Lord
a prayer by Francis Drake

Disturb us, Lord, when
We are too well pleased with ourselves
When our dreams have come true
Because we dreamed too little,
When we arrived safely
Because we sailed too close to the shore.

Disturb us, Lord, when
With the abundance of things we possess
We have lost our thirst
For the Waters of Life;
Having fallen in love with life,
We have ceased to dream of eternity
And in our efforts to build a new earth,
We have allowed our vision
Of the new Heaven to dim.

Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,
To venture on wider seas
Where storms will show your mastery:
Where losing sight of land
We shall find the stars.

We ask you to push back
The horizons of our hopes;
And to push us in the future
In strength, courage, hope, and love.
