Once I have made my peace and received forgiveness the end of the day becomes a beautiful time to count blessings, praise and dream for the coming days. Such a simple ritual as comforting and predictable as the changing of the tides and the rising and setting of the sun. Peace.

The end of the day is a lovely time to reflect. Something about the setting sun and the approach of evening is conducive to pondering, and rolling over the events of the day or perhaps the week in your mind and heart. It might be a pensive time repenting an angry word or selfish action or lamenting the missed opportunity to do a good deed.
I've always liked this line from evening prayers, Forgive us O lord for the things we have done and the things we have left undone.
