Teach us to count our days that 
we may gain a wise heart. - Psalm 90:12 (NRSV)

A new year makes me acutely conscious of the passage of time: how we allow calendars and clocks to dominate us, how there is never enough time for what we need or want to do. It reminds me how time changes some things but not others. Time helps heal grief...

Today's Prayer
Eternal God, teach us to use our days to “gain a wise heart.” Amen.
