A LEAP YEAR PRAYER
Each year God gives us 365 days. 365 chances to laugh, cry, praise, whoop, holler, pray, eat, work, sleep, adventure, reflect, consider, experiment and rest.
But this year God has given us 366 chances.
As the Solar and Lunar calendars are shuffled together we are given a bonus day to make up the difference.
29.02.20 may be just another Saturday, but it could also be a moment to step out of the normal routine of the calendar and look at the rest of the year ahead, offering it humbly to God.
Here's a wee prayer as we step into the rest of 2020 together
A Leap Year Prayer
This year may we leap
into the unknown
in a single bound —
willing to fall into God’s open arms.
May we take leaps
of intuition —
willing to risk looking silly in showing kindness to others.
May we take a running leap
when we are foolish
and hurtful —
willing to make amends in word and deed.
May we be ladies and lords a’leaping
with one another —
willing to go the whole hog in celebrating together.
May we leap at the chance to
by serving others
noticing your work going on around us —
willing to join in.
May this leap year be our leaping off point.
