Let Me Be Love (A Prayer)
(Adapted from Rachel Macy Stafford’s, “Only Love Today”)
Let me be love.
Not the shiny, perfectly worded, flashy, flowery love that comes when it’s convenient and goes when it’s not.
No, let me be the messy, genuine, put in the effort, feel it in your bones, Come As You Are kind of love.
Let me be the Show Up kind of love that is found where it is least expected and when it is most needed.
Let me be the Mountain Moving kind of love that offers and inspires hope and makes growth possible.
Let me be the Unconditional, Limitless kind of love that rises with the sun and stretches beyond human failings and shortcomings.
Let me be the Lighthouse kind of love, a beacon of light in the swirling storms of life that leads to a safe and peaceful harbor.
Let me be the All In kind of love that risks it all, holds nothing back, and encourages honesty and transparency.
Let me be the Wholly Accepting, Open-Hearted kind of love that makes for a soft place to lay one’s head at night for both the giver and the receiver.
Let me be that love.
