finish every day

My bedtime mantra:

Lord, let me sink down like a stone, and rise up like new bread.  


Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some 
blunders and absurdities no doubt have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. 
Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be 
cumbered with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too 
dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on yesterdays.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

My favorite is the pic of the hammock in the trees

Me too - loving the hammock. But what I love most of all is 1. your prayer, and 2. Mr. Emerson's quote. Beautiful. Karin

No way to choose a favorite....this time of night, with my sleepy, skewed perception they all look like a place to slip away into another dimension. G'night!
