A Keeping Space of Silence
THIS YEAR NEEDS ADVENT
needs a keeping space of silence and of darkness nearing down,
Someplace where all that can be still is stilled
And everything but hope...(is) gone,
Where there is less of me and more of grace.
There in the waiting moments you have willed
Lies healing for an often-wounded soul,
The deep recovery of who I am
Where every whispered longing to be whole
I ever breathed is finally fulfilled.
- Jennifer Lynn Woodruff
Just in case I am not the only one who needs this past year and the one ahead to receive, "Peace. Be still."
Blessings of the Season,
