weekend has been set aside for a special purpose and I’ve been looking forward
to it all winter. Every year, for the past several years, the women in our
church have been going on a weekend retreat where we can set aside all our
cares and responsibilities and spend time with each other and with God. We’ll
be heading to the beautiful Mount Alverno retreat centre in Caledon on Friday.
Softly…softly…like eiderdown floating
Jesus, Lover of my soul,
The touch of your hand soothes all the jagged edges of my spirit,
The places where my “fur” has been rubbed the wrong way,
The dots that refuse to connect,
The derailment of all my intentions,
Scrambling my thoughts and stealing my peace.
What a day!
Let me sit at your feet,
Rest my head on your knee
And just be.
I will drink from your cup and be satisfied
And when I am at peace I will see
What I missed in the midst of the storm…
You were there.
