The Prayer Tree

I'm thankful for a marvelous sweet little blessing of a book called THE PRAYER TREE by Leunig. It's filled with lovely moments of gratitude and simple prayers, sometimes silly, sometimes solemn and it makes me very happy to read it. Get it if you can!
One example:
God bless our contradictions, those parts of us which seem out of character. Let us be boldly and gladly out of character. Let us be creatures of paradox and variety: creatures of contrast; light and shade: creatures of faith. God be our constant. Let us step out of character into the unknown, to struggle and love and do what we will. Amen

  1. I like the notion of appreciating our contradictions -- I definitely have plenty to appreciate!
