O God, Thank you for the places I have called home. For the shelter and nurture found there. For the people who have cared for me and shared my life.

O God, Sometimes I am overwhelmed with the world around me. There are so many who need care and support. The demands of life can be so much. Help me to step away.  To take time apart from the demands and the needs of others. To remember that I am also your child, in need of rest and care, too. …

when we’re angry

Earlier this week, I was upset at something that happened at my house.  I was irritated, ticked-off, and just plain angry.  Typically, I have a long fuse with enough patience and empathy to deal with the frustrations of living and working with other human beings, but there are times when I have just had enough.  That morning was one of …
