A Prayer of Wakefulness
by David Teems
"You are the sun in my eyes, Lord, the day that breaks on all my sleeping senses.
Search me until you see yourself.
I am hopeful clay."
"And in the yielding, in the undoing, in the unraveling of all my fictions,
in the unspinning of all my webs, in the letting go,
I will know with certainty just who I am."
"Let joy overcome me, even as sight given to a man born blind.
Let gladness and thanksgiving be my twin witnesses in a cynical world.
Let redemption, like worship, be a continuous event in my life."
"Author me into gladness. Put yourself into this peculiar work.
For I am no less a gospel, a love letter written by the sure hand of majesty.
I am a poem forming in the mouth of my God,
a psalm ascending, an ecstasy rising in the midst of all my disenchantments."
"I am contentment in the heart of deity.
I am myself. I am awake.
In Christ, my wakefulness. Amen."
Morning Blessings to All,
This prayer was taken from, "And Thereby Hangs A Tale" by David Teems.

Tea for Two
There's tea I've made for you and me,
I'm asking on my knees,
Please come to share with me, O Lord,
for I hope you will be pleased.
My gates are not made of pearls
and my roads not made of gold,
but one day Lord I'll join you up there,
for the Bible says, I'm told,
Until I do please join me,
for I've made tea for two,
I've made one for me, O Lord,
and the other is for you.
Pinch me- I must be in heaven!
What a glorious time I had at the Potted Geranium in Greensboro, GA.
I am thankful for this beautiful day spent with one of the dearest women in my life!
Thank you Susie for this special time!
Love to All,
