A Prayer found in Chester Cathedral
Give me a good digestion,
And also something to digest;
Give me a healthy body,
With sense to keep it at its best.
Give me a healthy mind,
To keep the good and pure in sight;
Which seeing sin is not appalled,
But finds a way to set it right.
Give me a mind which is not
That does not whimper, whine or sigh;
Don’t let me worry
About the fussy thing
Give me a sense of humour, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke;
To get some happiness from life,
And pass it on to other folk.
I like this poem. It deals with some of our every day, (we hardly know they are our faults) in a light hearted and kind way. Nobody likes an unkind tongue, but the gentle touch of a poet can be very effective in getting the message home. My ladies group loved this Poem because especially the whimpering, whining and sighing bit!
Happy weekend to all.
