Some of you may have remembered to pray the Evening Prayer we suggested each night for this time away.
Patricia and I remembered it often . . .
but . . .
sadly . . .
Anyway . . .
the prayer goes like this,
for those of you who may have forgotten it:
Now at the close of this day
to say thank you
for opening our eyes, ears, hands, and minds
to the ways you are in the world.
Through this night
may your rest be with the weary,
may your solace be with the brokenhearted,
may your healing be with the ill,
may your peace be with the troubled,
may your justice be with the oppressed.
May your comfort and delight be with family and friends everywhere.
I’m praying these words tonight as I post this retrospective of photos you may not have seen:
And . . .
well . . .
then . . .
donchaknow . . .
may you . . .
always and always . . .
find your way . . .
back . . .
My, my, my . . .
Thank you, Angela, for leaving the house as welcoming as you left it for us.
We are grateful!
