Dear God, let me see the abundance already around me. Let me walk cheerfully through the woods today, hearing birdsong and smelling the earth.

How small yesterday’s worries now appear! Let me view today’s troubles from tomorrow’s vantage point. These, too, will shrink to nothing. Tomorrow I will forget what pains me today.

So let me spread cheer, dear Lord. I already live among your bounty.

(Letter #1,595)
