Hypnotized by the blinking cursor
and its calming hum
Today I prayed for inspiration
New words, new thoughts,
new reason to give pause
Across the bottom of the screen
A message flashed
"One new email from Mom"
Everything I need to know, I learned from Noah's Ark
ONE: Don't miss the boat.
TWO: Remember that we are all in the same boat!
THREE: Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
FOUR: Stay fit. When you're 60 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
FIVE: Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
SIX: Build your future on high ground.
SEVEN: For safety's sake, travel in pairs.
EIGHT: Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
NINE: When you're stressed, float awhile.
TEN: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
ELEVEN: No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting.
Today I Pray...
...with a peaceful heart,
grateful for the angels that flutter in and out of my life
...ready "to float awhile"
fully aware that at rest
and with a quiet mind
the answers will come
