Autumn

Holy One,

May we come to this moment
As though we were a garden
And You the softening rain
As though we were an orchard
And You the swelling fruit
As though we were sand
And You the tide offering herself to the shore.

May we come to this moment
As though we were a body
And You our beating heart.
May we come open,
to be softened, ripened,
filled
by You.

    Dear Catherine,

    I am savouring these images and invitations for Presence with Holy Presence.

    Thank you! Shirley

    Such beautiful words, and a meaningful prayer Catherine. I’m carrying these images with me.
