Monday Spiritual Ruminations: Be Peace…

I asked God today,

how can this be, that people

kill and maim in your name?

He told me

have faith.

Faith moves mountains,

or so I’ve heard.

I will be faith.

I called on God as

I heard the winds of war raging

and guns spewing hatred

and she said

have Hope.

Hope is a light in the dark

or so I’ve heard.

I shall be hope.

I emptied my heart with God

as I heard the stories and felt the tears

and my Redeemer whispered,

love your enemy.

Love is the law

or so I’ve heard.

I must be Love.

And then I skipped a stone upon still waters

and the ripples slid out gently

far and farther yet.

The Spirit glimmered into

the echoes and

breathed Peace.

Peace that glows

and glimmers

and ripples.

I choose Peace.

I am

Peace.

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
