Note from Nature
In the silence of the morning
I am alive to the new day’s light,
alert to the early stirrings of the wind
and the first sounds of the creatures.
In the silence of my heart
I hear the yearnings that are in me and the fears,
the hopes that rise from within
and the doubts that trouble my soul.
In the beginnings of this day, O God,
before the night’s stillness is lost to the day’s busyness, open to me the treasure of my inner being
that in the midst of this day’s busyness I may draw on wisdom.
Assure me again of my origins in you,
assure me again that my true depths are of you.
–John Philip Newell, Sounds of the Eternal: A Celtic Psalter
I must say that the Monday morning meditations program was a Godsend during these endless days of the pandemic. Insightful photography combined with inspiring words. No better way to begin the work week than by awakening the senses and stirring the soul.
