Peace of Mind
Once Overwhelmed What if?What then?Tormenting thoughtsof random fears,torrential rains of worry pummeled my sanctity to a flooded swampof muddy misery.No morewhat ifs,what thens,cascading through myconsciousness, uncontrolled.
Saving Grace Now that I’ve been the recipient of grace,please give me a gracious spirit.Remind me that I’m not omniscientand can’t know what life is like for anyone else.Put me on notice that I’m not a judge on a tribunalticking off each little sin and magnifying it.
"Theway-itis" At the end of every night, I try "wind down" by watching the late news. A gang shooting at the Little League field. Thunderstorm tomorrow. I couldn't figure it out then, but it was actually winding me up, not down, and adding to the stockpile of stress in my mind.
