I studied the bird, deeply impressed that she seemed to know instinctively that in stillness is healing. I had been learning that too, learning that stillness can be a prayer that transforms us.
Quote: Sue Monk Kidd, When the Heart Waits

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.
John Philip Newell, Celtic Benediction
Breathe deep and take in these quiet moments – the time just before the first bird sings.
The spirit is near but we are often unaware. Even as her offer to encourage and inspire stands ready, we manage to proudly claim this inspiration as something of our own creation.
May you begin this Sabbath with a still and focused breath.
