A whimsical prayer after a long walk

Gracious God, I thank you.

I thank you that I was able to take

a long walk today, pushing Lucy in her stroller.

I thank you that we could walk in safety.

I thank you for all the many times Lucy

turned around to look at me

and say “Hiiiii” in a loud voice.

I pray that every grandchild and grandparent

might have the opportunity to take such walks

or engage in other activities freely and safely.

May that day soon come.

Oh, and God, I could use a hand

with some aching muscles.

You know which ones they are.
