The stone waller's prayer


Lord, grant me the courage to accept the stones that I should not change the shape of, even though I can 
The humility to  'change' the stones which just might be 'improved' by me shaping them
 And the wisdom to know the difference.

  1. TJ beat me to it. :)

    Wisdom plays into it I'm sure, but so does simply listening...

  2. It's harder to listen to a stone whispering that it doesn't need shaping when you are holding a a hammer in your hand.
