Turn my heart to your decrees, and not to selfish gain.
Turn my eyes from looking at vanities; give me life in your ways.

Our collective attention span has dwindled to the proportions of gnats. I am distracted by the smallest things. When it is time to focus on important things, their importance is not enough to ward off the fairies of trivia. We spin our heads until we only can see ourselves with any clarity and convince ourselves that we are fine as long as no one else needs a piece of us. Sometimes I even mix my metaphors inside the tiny paragraph that is ELOGOS. But in the writing of it I find myself turning my head, looking for answers, looking for myself. And there inside God's word for this day, I hear a voice calling us all into the stillpoint. In the constant turning and distractions, there is peace.

Your ways are sure, O Lord, and filled with life. Amen.
