Good morning from the lakeside deck ~

Merry Christmas Holy Week ~ Wednesday 

My morning writing ~

In morning’s winter cold

I sit surrounded by a changing sky

Seeing a blue solstice sunrise 

Rising over Lake Ann’s Bear Point ~

I know ~

It’s the edge point of growing longer days

Arriving on another new year’s cusp

With a waning crescent moon ascending 

I find an eternal promise of hope 

Reflections ~

Prayer is so personal, sought inside the heart. Sometimes we need to “be still” in quiet places.  
Jesus prayed alone. Luke 5:16 reads, “But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.” As much as Jesus understood the value of praying with and for others, He also understood the need to pray alone. Psalm 46:10 reads, “Be still, and know that I am God.”
