"Let the seeds sown by our labors today.."
Today's (bedtime at 2:40 am) night prayer (compline*) ended thus: "Give our bodies rest, Lord, to restore them; and let the seeds sown by our labours today grow and yield an eternal harvest. Through Christ our Lord, Amen." My thoughts went back to having spent more time playing with my kids today than ever before. Drawing, writing, dominoes and a silly game made up by my wife and kids with a maroon sock and the table which had a hole in the middle. Lord, may these seeds sown today, with lots of giggling and silliness, grow and yield an eternal harvest tomorrow. * I visit Universalis to follow the Liturgy of the Hours.
