Distractions in Prayer

I was at it bright and early -- praying my Daily Office of Morning Prayer. But somehow today, I allowed a distraction. In fact, I was so distracted that I had to take pictures of my distraction. "But," I thought, "this distraction could actually be an enhancement to my prayers. That line in Psalm 95 that says, 'The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands have molded the dry land' -- this distraction illustrates that line."
The distraction was so lovely I had to share it. This gives a whole new dimension to "Sunrise on the Marsh."

Please -- don't let anything distract you from your prayers.

WOW! That would distract any body. What a view and blessing you have to see this most mornings.
