Silence



Late one winter evening,
Silence presented herself at my door
wanting refuge for the night
and perhaps something more.

She brought a few things with her,
it didn't look like much
but soon she filled corners and niches
that had been neglected, forgotten and such.

Silence and I stood in the hallway
She unlocked what my heart had clasped
Silence filled the space between us
my heart breathed...peace at last.

Thresholds


Threshold was created by Roger Feldman for Laity Lodge. 


The stone structure is a stunning and intimate place for prayer,
reflection and quiet conversation. 


The light cast across the stone creates subtle changes as the sun and clouds 
move through the day. Different perspectives come into view 
as I follow the curving path into the center.




I am grateful for my companions and our bright afternoon venture.


Today marks the first Sunday of Advent. Thresholds are on my mind. God crosses the threshold from heaven to earth. From time to time, we step across our own thresholds into new territory. Most days, life settles into a familiar bounce and rhythm. Advent is the time to journey again.
