Eternal Teenager

Eternal Teenager

 

My prayer each day is that whatever happens, I will keep traveling with my Lord, the one who called me to follow him all those years ago, who calls me “to be me”…..

 

This short prayer was written by Margaret Cundiff, one of the first women ordained a deacon and priest in the Church of England.   In her sixties, she describes herself as an “eternal teenager”.   Even though I am unable to physically run (or barely walk), I feel in my heart that I too am an “eternal teenager” when it comes to walking/running with God in our hearts..  While we are not related, I have enjoyed reading a couple of Margaret’s books.

 

I also enjoy the verse of a hymn she quotes in her short book “One More Step”:

 

“One more step along the world I go,

One more step along the world I go.

From the old things to the new,

Keep me traveling along with you.

And it’s from the old I travel to the new,

Keep me traveling along with you.”
