A Mother’s Love (Psalm 61)

Dear Mother, hear my cry;

   listen to my prayer.

I call to you,

   my heart aches;

   give me peace and equanimity.

You are my safe harbor,

   protect me and shield me.

I long to rest assured in your presence

   and relax in the harmony of creation.

I will keep my promises, my Lady;

   and I pray that my faith will have children.

Give length to my days,

   and breadth to my years.

Thank you for your companionship;

   I feel your love and faithfulness.

I sing my prayers 

   with courage, strength and patience.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
