by Richard S. Gilbert

As we leave this com­mu­ni­ty of the spirit,
may we remem­ber the dif­fi­cult lesson
that each day offers more things than we can do. 

May we do what needs to be done,
post­pone what does not,
and be at peace with what we can be and do. 

There­fore, may we learn to separate
that which mat­ters most
From that which mat­ters least of all. 

From the book Rejoice Togeth­er: Prayers, Med­i­ta­tions, and Oth­er Read­ings for Fam­i­ly, Indi­vid­ual, and Small-Group Wor­ship, edit­ed by Helen R. Pickett.
