Wisdom help us find and hold to those life preservers that return us to our better selves when we are bedraggled and disarrayed, distraught and distracted, angry and overwhelmed. Help us hold onto these life preservers that return us safely to the heart of being: wonder, gratitude, kindness, joy. Whether we find them in a song or a prayer or a breath or blossom, whatever the guideposts to bring us back to center, to carry us home, Wisdom, help us find and hold onto them, deploying them to bear us to a different place. And when we have made it back, may we give thanks for such life preservers, such guideposts, such practices of the heart that unfailingly return us where we need to be to fulfill our faithful promises, to join life's chorus, to dance in wonder and mercy all our nights and days. Amen.
