Friday, 27 July 2007 - Solace

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for solace that soothes troubled times.

What can I do when I feel the world's harsh breath and know

That if I stay too long in its path

My path shall be burned up also.

I must go back to the land again

And find the eagle at home with the rock.

I must climb to the mountaintop

And find the spot where the river begins.

I must lie quietly beside the earth

And find the warmth of its heart.

I must turn my vision to the sky

And find the purpose of clouds.

Then trouble seems far away

And the breath which consumes all beauty

Has passed right over me.

~ Nancy Wood

For this blessing, I am grateful.
