Readers: Thank you for your patience with my hiatus. Over the past month I have continued to write these letters every morning, only I have not published them. I now will resume doing so. —B

Dear God, let me seek simplicity today. Let me, personally, seek to be simple. Let me not add burden and complication to what is already straightforward and plain. You call me to love others, to act in love towards all.

In all my actions today, Lord, let me move slowly and directly. Let me be driven forward by love – respecting and honoring the dignity of all who surround me. Let me recognize even anonymous passers-by as equally human as my closest kin.

And in my actions, let me seek to do your will. It is simple enough thing to try: let me try.

(Letter #1271)
