Poem for Prayerful Reflection by Rita Lucey, ARCWP

Let me gather in
My scattered powers
Powers that bring peace
To self and others

Empathy, compassion, love
Scattered!
As I search for time


Time, a man made measure
That elude the demands
Of everyday life
That sustain our physical needs.
That call us forth to a greater
Demand
Creating God̢۪s
Presence on this earth

Yes, the call to be
One with Christ
Can be onerous
Joyful,
Demanding,
Satisfying
Rewarding,

So let me gather in
My scattered powers
And experience the Peace
Of Christ while giving
Thanks for His restlessness

Which calls forth
My
Scattered powers.

Rita Lucey
