Ponder: Any teenager with a crush can tell you that we pursue some things knowing full well we will not succeed. When was the last time you went after something, not because it was a good idea, but just because you wanted to - just for the thrill of the chase?
Pray: God, when I was little, I knew how to play. I knew what it was to throw my heart out after something, knowing full well it might not come back. Remind me, today - because maybe, just maybe - what comes back might be You. Amen.
