When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.

Psalm 56:3

That’s it. That’s all I’ve got for today.

I went to bed last night with no idea for today’s post.

So, this morning, all I’ve got is a simple statement of faith. A simple statement of trust.

And sometimes, that’s all you need.

For some unexplained reason, the earworm I have today is “Once and for All” from Newsies. I don’t know why. Maybe a mashup of the things in my head means that I shouldn’t fear to seize the day.  Maybe not.
