I am first to the church today. It is 9:00--I have been here since 8:30. I like to get here just to be in the space where in less than hour will be filled with the energy, sorrows, laughter, lives, personalities, rushing racing of the congregation gathering for worship. The quiet is my anchor...my cord running to my balance and godplace inside of me. Grounding here for a few minutes...is a grace I can offer to myself.
Breathing in, I breath in the singing of the birds... Breathing out, I release any tension to misty fog... Breathing in, I breathe in the cool breeze gently caressing my cheek.... Breathing out, I open up my heart to welcome more fully with Your grace, Your peace, Your love to those who come to meet You today. Amen.
