A Long Day
I am tired. It’s been such a long day.
I am weary and weak from fighting in traffic,
hauling the kids, and working my fingers to the bone.
I need a break. I need some rest.
Please help me to relax
and release my stress and strain.

Thank you for Your stillness and strength.
I need You right now.
I need to just be with You.
In Your arms, in Your peace.
Thank you for helping me breathe.
