This quote always speaks to me – motormouth that I am!
Let us, then, labour for an inward stillness –
and inward stillness and an upward healing,
that perfect silence where the lips and heart are still,
and we no longer entertain our own imperfect thoughts and vain options,
but God alone speaks to us,
and we wait in singleness of heart,
that we may know His will,
and in the silence of our spirits,
that we may do His will and do that only.
Henry Wordsworth Longfellow
Today I am longing for singleness of heart – what a beautiful and whole place to be found.
May your heart, spirit, mind, body – may the whole of you have stillness and rest – even in the busy rush of Christmas planning.
And may that stillness protect, comfort and bring you Peace today.
