This day

“…Show to me this day
amidst life’s dark streaks of wrong and suffering
the light that endures in every person.
Dispel the confusions that cling close to my soul
that I may see with eyes washed by your grace…
…that I may be well in my own soul
and part of the world’s healing
this day
that I may be well in my own soul
and part of the world’s healing
this day. (Wednesday Prayers from Celtic Benediction)

We close another day. May we sleep when we are covered by the blanket of stars and awaken to the rising sun, renewed and ready to meet the day. Tomorrow begins with deep concern and reaching for hope. Wherever we are- imagine how we are connected- in safety, in spirit. May we see one another and be part of the healing.

all the possibilities and challenges

You do not need to know precisely what is happening,
or exactly where it is all going.
What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges
offered by the present moment,
and to embrace them with courage, faith, and hope.

Zen proverb

It is night

The night stirs with news of aggression and instability in the Middle East. I pray for safety of the innocent. I pray for clarity and caution.

I share this in hopes that rest can be found.
