If we persist in asking “Why?”
We must, recall the scenes gone by.
Much more from past the mind will dwell.
Fresh causes seek - deep histories tell!
Instead, we gain from moment phase
For greatest good to now rephrase
“Why not?”, “What next?”, and use our skill
In contexts where we need to fill.
When, at last, true vision align
When Lord is seen as present time
And we remain attuned to Grace
Not just in time but every space
When this is so, our thanks would be
For previously suffered agony
As pains That made us to Him turn
Were means for us to live and learn
O Lord of Time, I place myself far from Thee when I dwell on the past; in these moments I fail to see You here and now. Thank you for all the painful moments; grant me more compassion and the grace to see the milestones as evidence of Your Divine hand.
