Monday spiritual Rumination: a prayer for spring

It’s late February and

The birds are coming home.

Daylight is longer

And the breezes carry the scent

Of a vague


Of Spring.

Tempers flare with flames born

Of too many long nights,

Dark days,

Bitter winds.

And now we can only


For Spring.

Holy Spirit,

Quench our fires of mistrust and restlessness

With your waters of

Patience and gentleness

And grow our


Of the new life

Of Spring.

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!
