Dear God, I look forward to days without obligation, I rush through my tasks, I give only partial attention to chores. I pursue idleness and imagine it will be restorative. Yet evening comes and I look back and see nothing, the idle hours lost.

Lord, my body grows stronger through use. My mind sharper through practice. My relationship with you deeper through persistent seekfulness.

Let me, even on a day without obligation, be diligent in my seeking. Grant me vision to distinguish between idle times and restful times.

(Letter #1472)
