Spiritual Ruminations: A prayer at the end of a long Lent…

The weeks have crawled past
my unclean heart
my desirous soul
my tempestuous mind
my exhausted limbs.

Good intentions aplenty
await at the starting line
so far back,

I’ve managed to crawl this far
This lush desert of wonder and questions.

All I set in motion has been left behind.
[the Lenten intention, that is]

leaving the hurdles and bumps
mounting daily.

All I must do, need do

Is traverse them,

One foot in front of the other.

Guide my feet, O God,
one more day
And thus,
we shall arrive
at Calvary.

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!
