Let the evening come, and the day’s burdens go

“Lord, we let evening come & let go of the weariness, of the edginess,
let evening come & let go of the weight of things done & not done, said & not said, held tight & not held tight enough.

We let evening come & let the day’s burdens go
and linger with its blessings… the grace of Your caress in forgiven things.”

and that deep in my core I am really no good.
I am afraid people will see right through me
and discover that I have no idea what I am doing. Read more…

They may seem like simple things to someone else, but everything all together feels overwhelming at times, and so I think some weeks I just check out and stop trying. If I feel like everything as a whole is too much for me to handle, I just let go of all the little things all together. Read more…
