Take this moment


After a rather dreich drive through misty glens, the sun appeared and, as I arrived at my destination, what a welcoming sight - lush greenery, dancing daffodils , sturdy trees and a home with a beckoning glow. The scene was set for a time of rekindling and nurturing.
If you came this way,
Taking any route, starting from anywhere,
At any time or at any season,
It would always be the same:
you would have to put off
Sense and notion.
You are not here to verify,
Instruct yourself,
or inform curiosity
Or carry report.
You are here to kneel
Where prayer has been valid.
T S Elliot
There are places that demand little of us other than that we simply be. And, in the being, we can soak up all the lessons that creation holds for us for that particular moment and in that space and time know the very Creator's embrace, an embrace to lean into.

Oh, Liz, my heart is soaring! This is a beautiful refreshing post! The photo of a gorgeous scene, TS Elliot, and your final words, "There are places that demand little of us other than that we simply be. And, in the being, we can soak up all the lessons that creation holds for us for that particular moment and in that space and time know the very Creator's embrace, an embrace to lean into."

We are certainly on the same wave length today, you and me. Thank you so much!

Cherie,
thanks yet again for your encouragement. I'm loving being part of the blogging community. It seems like there's a lot of growing going on just now and I'm so grateful for the space and the encouragement of good folk like you to reflect on that.
