In the middle of so many things, I have decision fatigue. img_4991.jpg

Is this staying or going?

Should I choose this or that?

Which way will this situation go and how should I respond?

I’m too tired to choose words for praying. Too tired to make this cogent and sensible.

Too exhausted to do anything, but imagine a prayer, rising like incense-

A wispy little plume of streaming praise, desire, hope, and supplication.

May it reach Your nostrils with a pleasing aroma.

And, in your mercy, answer me.
