Sunday; September 10, 2017~ One never knows Who might show up for meditation and morning prayer. It's a little early, but maybe this young buck was trying to find his way to chapel for Mass at 11AM. Whatever the answers- here we are- looking at each other, possibly, as a lot of people in our world do regularly. Am I safe, do I stay? Do I trust who is here? Have I time to decide?... or do I bolt; leave now! whether it's a hurricane or another person, you and I make these decisions quite regularly. How long do I listen.. give this my attention? We spent a while Taking each other in... As St Clare says; "Gaze....consider... contemplate..." Then, it seemed to me, the greenery here was more interesting or enticing than I. Slowly walking away, browsing in the bushes- he walked from view back into the beauty That surrounds us both here this morning. + • • Lord, for those of us who are more challenged by what is before us today, - Help us as we face- a hurricane war, hunger, the anger of another person. Stand with us walk with us guide us to safe places. LORD of LIFE we ask this in your Name, Amen "like the deer that yearns for running streams, so my soul is your yearning for you, my God; my soul is thirsting for God, the living God." (from today's Mass!)
