Point of View Therapy
Father, God, I ask an outlook such as Yours;©08/06/2013 Carol Welch
remove the hardening of attitudes.
Cause truthful love to fill my reservoir,
see with Your clarity, unmoved by moods.
See friends, with frailties, such as those of mine,
not to judge nor, foolishly, to yield,
but, with respect and kindness, bottom-line,
not falsely perceive an impervious shield.
As You have dealt with me, let me see them,
with each, their heights and lows of life to deal.
It's a stretch, but turn my heart You can,
to accept and, still, to care, what others feel.
