The day is over and sleep is near.
I am thankful for this day.
Thank you for the smiles I received,
the attentive children in my classroom,
the companionship of my family this evening.
I am excited about the new people and opportunities that are
presenting themselves to me.
This chapter is an exciting one.
I so appreciate my life.
Please send your love, guidance, and healing to those out there who feel:
Tonight I invite you to take that bath, pour that glass of wine or brew that herbal tea…
Before bed, write a prayer in your journal. It can be very simple. Connecting to God (or whatever your faith may be) is very healthy for us. Getting out of ourselves a bit, focusing on a higher power can provide us with: perspective, the feeling of awe and love, gratitude, support, insight, and most of all: PEACE
My prayer for tonight:
Thank you for this day and now for the fact that this day has come to an end. I so welcome the evening and a little rest.
God, I hope that the good I did outweighed anything else. I appreciate the opportunities I was given to be a loving patient wife, teacher, and mother.
I appreciate all the smiles I received from colleagues and strangers.
I appreciate the beautiful Florida day I enjoyed as I took my young students outdoors today for recess.
I am thankful for the chance to inspire and nurture others. I love to be creative and I can do that during my work day and
writing here for The Warm Milk Journal.
Please help me to have perspective and continue to do good work.
Help me also to stretch and think out of the box regularly.
close at hand.
I am thankful for this day.
It was a good day.
The evening beckons with it’s dimming light,
calm and quiet,
and opportunity to relax and renew.
Nighttime, I am all yours.
Do with me as you may.
I release my blessed day and surrender
to the peace of the night.
A few months ago we talked about keeping a prayer journal. Part of taking care of ourselves is nurturing our spiritual lives. If your days are as filled as mine are it would probably do you some good to take a deep breath and think of all the goodness there is in your life.
Life is good.
My prayer for this evening:
Thank you for this day. I pray I did some good work today. Perhaps some second graders I am entrusted with during the school day are enriched or inspired in some way because of this day we shared together.
Thank you for all of the love in my life. I am truly blessed. Thank you for the good food that my fiance is cooking for us downstairs as I write this. I know its nourishment will be good for my tired body.
Thank you for reminding me that although life is not always perfect or how I think I want it to be there truly is nothing better going than this very moment.
So God, on this evening, I want to thank you for my day and my life.
Baruch Ata Adonai, Thank you God!
Now Dear Warm Milk Journal Readers, it is your turn. Whatever your religious or spiritual beliefs may be, I invite you to write or think a prayer for the end of this day. The divine light is in all of us.
Have a very blessed evening.
