Monday spiritual ruminations: welcome Advent… 

Winter skies of deep indigo inky

And blotted with a moon of chilled pearl

Come earlier each afternoon

lingering into the morning

More deliberately


My ache and yen

For rest, quiet, peace

As I travel towards another Bethlehem remembrance.

It is Advent

And the wait is the treasure.

I light a single candle amid

Stories of cosmic chaos

Humming lullabys

That sound like carols

And I breathe in the purity

Of an inky indigo night.

Welcome Advent.

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!
