“And I will never again underestimate the power of anticipation. There is no better boost in the present than an invitation into the future.”
― Caroline Kepnes, You
I have been gathering things together for some time in preparation for my trip to Iowa for my nephew’s wedding.
The little odd jobs I’ve had to do these past few weeks have distracted me. I am grateful.
Now, it’s time to pull it all together.
I’ve been questioning many things–wondering if I’ve made the best decisions.
My guess is I am not alone in these thoughts. The questioning can be relentless.
May this prayer help you, my fellow debaters.
May we all enjoy a good night’s rest.
Now is the time to light the vesper candles
of the soul
for their flame shall illuminate this sacred
Now is the time to rest in the indigo blue
arms of the earth
for the earth shall support and embrace you.
Now is the time to dry the tears of the day
for the Spirit shall comfort and console you.
Now is the time to offer thanks for the
blessings of the day
for the Spirit shall receive and honor your
Now is the time to hear the lullaby of wind
for you shall be rocked in the soothing
of its rhythm.
Now is the time to close your eyes and let
for the Spirit shall keep tender vigil through
