a psalm for busy people

(translated from Japanese)

The Lord is my Pacesetter,
I shall not rush.
He makes me to pause and rest for quiet intervals.
He provides me with images of stillness,
which restore my serenity.
He leads me in ways of efficiency through calmness of spirit,
and His guidance of peace.
Even though I have a great many things to do each day,
I will not fret,
for His presence is here,
His all-importance to keep me balanced.
He prepares refreshment and renewal in the midst of
my activity by anointing my
mind with His oils of tranquility.
My cup of joyous energy overflows.
Surely harmony and usefulness shall be the fruit
of my hours,
for I shall walk at the pace of my Lord
and dwell in His house forever.

I went to see my Gran today.

She's alive - and that's supposed to be enough for me. But it isn't.
Seeing her there, pale as the white linen around her, with 6 machines plugged into her and an enormous amount of pipes feeding into and out of her... it took all I could muster to bear it. And even then, only for a little while.

They say her brain is functioning 100%, even though it might not look like it.

She squeezed my hand and told me that she loves me...

My Grandmother just went into surgery for another (3rd) bypass op. The surgery is scheduled from 7AM to 4PM today.

The doctor isn't exactly enthusiastic about the chances of success, as her arteries are severely weakened, clogged and damaged.

Those of you who believe - please pray for her.
Pray that the surgeon and support team do a better job than ever.
Pray for her to live.

Thank you.
