- FOOD FOR THOUGHT -
When I’m hurting or afraid or anxious, it can be hard to go to sleep. So by reviewing the day, I remember I was caught, I was loved. I can go to sleep, trusting for gifts of love tomorrow. “For what am I most thankful today? When was I most fully alive? How did I receive love? How did I give love?”
This practice of prayer, from the examen of Saint Ignatius, helps many go to sleep.
