What else do we need?

Friday’s door- Playtime

Friday- a day when doors can look more playful- when they might even spark ideas to slow the pace and bring out creativity to refresh the spirit.

We thank God for every day but Friday can bring a gleam in our eyes and fill our hearts with gratitude. Whatever day is your Friday- may it offer the promise of time.

The heart stirs

Find the thing that stirs your heart and make room for it. Life is about the development of self to the point of unbridled joy.  Sister Joan Chittister

What is left? Prayer…

So this is how you swim inward. So this is how you flow outwards. So this is how you pray.
Mary Oliver

On this quite night we come to the most important moments of our Advent journey. We feel the time for slumber with all projects complete and hearts and homes prepared. We were asked to be on alert and to get ready. We have watched for the signs and completed the tasks

But all the preparation leads us to this moment. For like midwives we must stand near, ready for the ultimate job. In/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/751/11099331/files/2014/12/img_1937.jpg prayerful presence as this young baby is born we are here at highest alert – to assist if needed. This is why we have been waiting. This is the moment, all of our preparation leads to ‘now’.

May we stay calm – to draw our breath as it swims inward and exhale as it flows outward; the rhythm of birth and the practice of prayer.
