O Lord our God, help us to find time to recharge our batteries today. For so many of us we don’t take enough time for ourselves. Let us recognize the value of of a third quarter nap. May we have an escape (even for a short time) from all the pressures that life throws at us every day. Let us be a part of giving that same escape to those we love. When we share each other’s burdens, ours become lighter. Help us to prioritize the people for whom we care. Let them know by our actions how important they are to us. Finally, give us the gift of your peace which passes all understanding, and may your presence be apparent to us as we journey through this day. Amen.
