Start Sunday Silently


Silent Sunday

Enjoy Today!

If you are not with “your children” today,
you can substitute  “your children” for “your spouse”
or “your neighbors” or “yourself.”
Change “they” to “you” or “s/he”…

Enjoy Today

Ponder these thoughts –
Go somewhere to worship God today –
Pray –
Enjoy your loved ones.

I’ll be singing in the choir this morning
and listening carefully to the
message presented by Rev. Hundley.

Come back in about 5 hours for my sermon notes.

Have a beautiful Sunday.

Sit a Spell


Come and sit a spell
Enjoy the quiet with me
Trees and I … silence

Waiting for you to come sit

Walk the wooded path
Listen to the leaves rustle
Silence is broken

Disciples in the Desert


Walking On the Sand

Today I am putting on
a purple shirt of majesty.
I am walking through the desert
As a queen in her sand castle.

Walk with me!
Enjoy the desert beauty.

The clear blue sky is my ceiling.
The palm trees stand like
guardian statues on the path –
Majestic and serene.

Shadows fall from the sun
setting behind the graceful fronds.
I will examine the trees’ trunks,
seeing a text of eternity.

I’ll consider the roadrunners
as students of our January summer.
I will scour the sky for signs
as if my future were written upon it.

I will walk with my best friend
in mutual silence;
Disciples in the desert,
in praise of its mysteries.

Time to go.

I’ll be back.

The Sounds of Silence

THE SOUNDS OF SILENCE

 

Silence is resounding in my ears.

Silence wipes away confusion and fears.

Silence speaks as all nature rings.

Silence breaks as songbird sings.

 

Silence whispers compassion’s song –

Let’s me contemplate yesterday’s wrong.

Allows God’s grace to fill this space

Instead of wallowing in my own disgrace.

 

Silence brings new life to God’s Word.

It lets the Holy Spirit speak and be heard.

It opens my heart to name the nameless

And enter their world blameless and shameless.

 

Open my heart, Lord, in silence to know

All that You’re saying, all that You show

Through challenges booming or hugs soft and sweet.

Help me to hear You in ALL that I meet.
