Lenten Meditations: April 5

And what did you do on earth?

I descended daily into the hush…if only for a moment, but sometimes for blessed hours at a time.

  • From “Remember” by Christine Valters Paintner



What do you observe when you descend into the hush, the silence, the holy? It can be a mere moment when you are in awe at the taste of a strawberry, the feel of water as you wash a dish, the sound of spring rain, the warmth of sun on your face. Or it can be a place of cultivating the breath, sitting in silence. There’s not just one way to experience the hush. Not just one way to pay attention. And then… begin again.



Source of all, awaken my experience of holy in all that comes to me.
