When the Sun is Setting

What a lovely passage by Morgan Harper Nichols:

And in those moments where the sun is setting

and the house is quiet and you are weary from the day,

may you know that there is grace for you in that space,

and no amount of heaviness or loneliness can take

that away. And because of that grace, you are free to slow 

down. You are free to breathe and rest, no matter the 

things not sorted out. There might be some mystery here,

and there might be longing, wondering and waiting, but

 there will also be boundless peace that goes beyond

any understanding, running wild like a river

through everything, no matter how heavy these moments 

feel. So rest easy, when evening is approaching. Tomorrow

is surely coming, but in the hours in between, 

you are free to rest till then.

  1. Wow!
    I’ve been rushing, running and worrying about a specific time frame for Monday. I’ve accomplished all I can for now. Thank you for allowing myself permission to finally “Unlax”. (Coined by my dad a million years ago. If you relax, you’ve already done it. Unlax is in the moment.)

    Thank you,
