Bless This Cane of Mine

thCAB05IRP“Lord, you have given me many gifts and opportunities in my life and I hope I’ve lived up to Your hope for me.  I’m not sure if You’ve given me this cane but please inspire me to see it as a gift.

I cling to independence as much as the next person.  I admit that this change is not easy for me.  But I also admit that this addition is necessary.

Moses needed a prop to keep the people of Israel focused on You and Your eternal power.  My this can empower me to live life as fully as I lived it before.

May I use it frequently and carefully and know that gifts from You come in shapes and sizes.

Who knows, I may be able to close a door more easily with my new extra extension – my now blessed and necessary cane.”
