it's been a long week. i'm reflecting on how little i can reflect when i'm tired.

i pushed my muse all week with my sermon, new job, interviews for 2nd job, starting a running program, monitoring our new cat. i can't even capitalize my words.

i'm thankful for all the blessings in my life and happy to have a bed upon which to lay my head. i'm taking the rest of the week off, cuz going crazy is not in my job description.

so i conclude this short entry with my favorite prayer from the new zealand prayer book for the evening.
Lord it is night.

The night is for stillness. Let us be still in the presence of God.

It is night after a long day. What has been done has been done; what has not been done has not been done. Let it be.

The night is dark. Let our fears of the darkness of the world and of our own lives rest in you.

The night is quiet. Let the quietness of your peace enfold us, all dear to us, and all who have no peace.

The night heralds the dawn. Let us look expectantly to a new day, new joys, new possibilities.

In your name we pray. Amen

thanks for showing up to this moment.
