Laying It Down

These words come from a gorgeous little booklet called 'What I Think and Read About Worry', by Corrie Ten Boom and woman who hid Jews during the war and spent time in a concentration camp. The latter part of her life was all about healing and reconciliation between victims and perpetrators of the war.

Worry is about carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength - carrying two days in one. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. There is just one day in the calendar of action, that is today. Planning should include a wide swing of days. But action belongs to one day only - today. We get tensed up about the uses up energy you need for today's business of living.

May you find the strength and grace you need today to let go of the worries that belong to the future.
