The Gateway

“You enter the extraordinary by way of the ordinary.”― Frederick Buechner

“Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery it is. In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it, because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.”― Frederick Buechner, Now and Then: A Memoir of Vocation

Create margin, white space, quiet to listen, tune in.
Allowing new thoughts and insights to enter, not the same worn-out opinions and assumptions to rule.
Slow to take in the scenery, to be held in the mystery.
Less doing, more being.
Even if only for a short respite.
To be made and remade again and again.
Filling the well to pour more into the world.
Grace, peace and love.
May you receive and give these today.

“We do not pray so that we can get God’s attention. We pray so that God will get our attention.”― David G. Benner, Opening to God: Lectio Divina and Life as Prayer
