Monday Spiritual Rumination: waiting…

Another rumination from my online retreat experience:

How to wait

There is a time for each of us

That is the sacred moment of waiting,

With impatience

And with great patience.

Sit, mould a bit, cry, wonder, pray.

Sniff the aroma of spring lilacs and apple blossoms

Let them fill you up and lift you to floating

Walk, skip, dance, dream

Sit again and reexamine the doorway

In which you wait.

Are you coming or are you going?

Perhaps it is both

Sit again, and wonder on this waiting place

With joy and delight.

 Blessings as you wait…

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!
