very weak and weary indeed

A friend and I did a lot of sorting at my dad's house today.
A bit of Royal Albert china, a lot of junk.
20 credit cards.
A debt total that is unbelievable.
Tomorrow I have to drive to my dad's hometown, four hours each way....
and I'm not used to driving more than 25 minutes from home.
So many details, so many burdens.
I pray the prayer of St. Patrick often
("Christ as a light, illumine and guide me,
Christ as a shield overshadow me;
Christ over me, Christ under me,
Christ beside me on my left and my right....")
because I need illumination,
and the surrounding presence of God.
