Prayer: "Filling every Moment" by Unknown

If, as Herod, we fill our lives with things, 

and again with things, 

If we consider ourselves so unimportant 

that we must fill every moment of our lives with action, 

when will we have the time 

to make the long slow journey across the desert 

as did the Magi? 

Or sit and watch the stars 

as did the Shepherds? 

Or brood over the coming of the child 

as did Mary? 

For each of us, there is a desert to travel, 

a star to discover, 

and a being within ourselves to bring to life.
