Evening Blessings ✨






O Lord support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen and the evening come,
and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done.
Then, in thy mercy, grant us a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last.
Amen

– From Saint Augustine’s Prayer Book

Sunday reflection . .Sincere self-talk





Tell the truth about what you are feeling. Tell the truth about what you are thinking. Tell the truth about what you are doing and why you are doing it. It is only when you tell the truth to yourself about yourself that you can get the help you need to bring yourself into alignment with God’s true purpose for you.

Unconditional




 

Unconditional
.
Willing to experience aloneness,
I discover connection everywhere;
turning to face my fear,
I meet the warrior who lives within;
opening to my loss,
I gain the embrace of the universe;
surrendering into emptiness,
I find fullness without end.
Each condition I flee from pursues me,
each condition I welcome transforms me
and becomes itself transformed
into its radiant jewel-like essence.
I bow to the one who has made it so,
who has crafted this Master Game.
To play it is purest delight;
to honor its form–true devotion.

“It is in times of brokenness that the soul sings its most wise and eternal song.







“It is in times of brokenness that the soul sings its most wise and eternal song. I cannot hum you a tune or tell you the lyrics; each person’s soul has its own cadence. You will recognize its music, though, by the way you feel when you are listening: awake, calm, and suddenly relieved of the burden of control. You will take a big breath, you’ll sigh and say to yourself, ‘It’s okay. Everything’s okay.’ You’ll unfold your arms and lean back, and say to the soul, ‘Just sing me your song. Teach me the words. Tell me what you know’.”

Do you have a personal mantra?




  

“Do you have a personal mantra? Mine comes from a childhood song. 
“Wherever I go the grass grows greener.”

Do all the good you can, in all the ways that you can….




 

Do all the good you can, in all the ways that you can
to all the souls you can, in every place you can
with all the zeal you can, every time you can.

– John Wesley

Renew me this night in the depths of sleep

  



Renew me this night in the depths of sleep,
set free my dreams of the unknown.
Safeguard this time of resting, O God,
enfold me in the darkness of the night. 


~ J. Philip Newell, Celtic Benediction
