Day 275: All in a row

Prayer cards lined up inside a Buddhist temple in Wakayama, Japan

Whether these cards pray for hope, love, healing, or loss, their uniformity brings a sense of calm and peace. Under the shelter of the spacious and elaborate temple, people pull and release a braided rope to ring the bell, cementing each prayer in a resonating clang.

The louder the bell, the stronger the prayer.

I pray for success, peace, and patience. The patience to live, love, and give completely and graciously.

Amen.
