Into Your Hands

“I light a candle and chant a favorite hymn.  The sadness and anxiety that has lodged itself in my soul shakes loose and flows out of me with the music.  I go for a walk, breathing deeply, acknowledging the springtime that is spreading through the world.  In this moment I remember that I am not in charge; I am only your helper.  The sticky pull of the world’s suffering eases a little.  Living or dying, I give you my heart and my complete trust, O God.”
