Day 11

1 My heart is not proud, Lord,
 my eyes are not haughty;
I do not concern myself with great matters
    or things too wonderful for me.
2 But I have calmed and quieted myself,
 I am like a weaned child with its mother;
 like a weaned child I am content. Psalm 131

In the first ten years of my Christian life of faith, I wanted to know all the “hows” and “whys”.
As I grew in my faith and learned more and more, slowly it became less important to try franticly figure out and comprehend God, and I reconciled to the impossibility of that goal.

Sound of Awe

Sometimes when no one is around,
I stand motionless,
Slow down my breath,
and listen to THAT sound.

Adam walking in the garden waiting for God,
Jacob resting on a rock after the fight of his life,
Joseph gazing at the stars in the field at night,
Moses leaning on his staff on the mountainside.

David closing his eyes after a fierce battle,
Solomon entering the new temple,
Hezekiah counting the steps on the stairway.
Elijah watching the ravens fly away.

I sense that I am not alone at all,
I am savoring the taste of THAT sound
The aroma of praise is lingering around,
It wraps me up like a light blue silk shawl
