Augustine of Hippo

Pink geranium in a pot
Growing under our carport awning

Father, You who are full of compassion,
I commit and commend myself unto You.
Be the goal of my pilgrimage,
and my rest by the way.
Let my soul take refuge from the 
crowding turmoil of worldly thoughts
beneath the shadow of Your wings;
let my heart find peace in You, O God. Amen
(Augustine of Hippo in, 
Flowers Along the Path 
by Esther Carls Dodgen, p. 116)
