dawn’s doorway

in Italy with Kevin Jones


The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the door sill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.
– Rumi

a thought for this Sabbath…


Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.
– Sir J. Lubbock

there is peace in the quiet found deep into the night. may this peace weave itself throughout the turmoil of our world, tonight and always.

Look up…


For all friends and family who are overwhelmed with details. So consumed they hesitate to ‘look up’ for fear they may lose their focus. Sometimes the things that can order our lives the most are as near as a breeze stirring fall leaves.

Look up, and see the opportunity God has given you. How often our vision becomes obscured by our many worries, they surround us like a dense forest, making it easy to lose our way. Life seems a burden. We drift among the endless details, weighted down with the bits and pieces of daily care. Look up, look out, look beyond to discover a path out of the woods. God opens the door to the cage, renews our vision, gives us a new way to start fresh with a clear mind and an open heart. Hear the bell ringing in the distance. Feel the breeze. Look up.

(Bishop Charleston)
