Josie Claire and Ellie Cate sunning.

O My Saviour,

Help me.

I am so slow to learn, so prone to forget, so weak to climb;

I am in the foothills when I should be on the heights;

I am pained by my graceless heart,

my prayerless days, my poverty of love, my sloth in the heavenly race, my sullied conscience, my wasted hours, my unspent opportunities.

I am blind while light shines around me: take the scales from my eyes,

grind to dust the evil heart of unbelief.

Make it my chiefest joy to study thee, meditate on thee, and gaze on thee.

Give me increase and progress in grace so that there may be more decision in my character,

more vigour in my purposes, more elevation in my life,

more fervour in my devotion, and more constancy in my zeal.

~Puritan Prayer

Beautiful picture! "Lessons from the farm" post is incredible and so so true. Thank you, Lord, for such poignant reminder. (And thank you, too, Robin. :0)
