Clouds move down the hill sweeping past my window.
Sometimes I see clearly, bright sun illuminating the hillside and water.
Sometimes I barely see anything as mists and clouds embrace me.
No matter how transient weather dances,
Earth remains below, around and before me.
No matter circumstances of life,
no matter ancient wounds within,
no matter lack of understanding,
no matter unknowing,
God, Eternal Presence, Divine One, Source of All, The Light,
The Heartbeat, The Holy One
remains below, around, before and within me.
Who’s not to say but transient weather dances are beautiful!
So let’s say too, in a loud voice, ‘Life is beautiful!’
Not always sunny,
not without suffering and surprises,
yet holding hidden moments of joy.
In all God is calling to me ‘Come my child, Come my beloved one. Keep your eyes on me and me alone. I will show you the path of life’.
Let the clouds come, the mists swirl, even the fog ,
the earth remains my home,
my temple not made with hands.
Within that temple I hear a humming, a love song for us all.
Shh…Listen with me….
Love and prayers

Makes me think of
this is the time to be slow
Lie low to the wall
Until the bitter weather passes
From to bless this space by John O’Donaghue
so beautiful….what a gift his words have been. — a snowy day today, a slow day
Cloudy thoughts makes me think of cloud of unknowing …
That is just so beautiful, Anne. There’s nothing more I can say about it. I just want to sit still with it and let it soak into me.
thank you 🙂
