the quiet that surrounds me…

 

I am – oh – so grateful for moments like these – for prayers like these.
Some days are filled with so much noise. This can be noise from within or all around or both.
It can be near and very far away. It is the type of noise that brings no peace.

And so I am grateful for the moments when God reminds me there is peace can be found in quiet.

To refrain 


The greatest wisdom in a man is to refrain from injurying another when he has the power to do so. ~ St. Teilo

The quiet of this place

In the quiet of this place, in the dark of the night, I wait and watch.
The senses of my heart are awake to you.
In the stillness of my soul, I search in the silence of my spirit, O God.

For the quiet that surrounds me and your promise of peace deep within me, for the stillness of sleep for my body and the hope of healing for my soul, thanks be to you, O God.
