times of refreshment

            One day last week, I strolled for a little while with a friend, arm in arm. We enjoyed each other, and we enjoyed all the dogs and houses and plants that we passed. Other things I did that day looked more important than that stroll, but they weren’t. Not even close.

“God, in the course of this busy life, give us times of refreshment. . . .” Book of Common Prayer
