Thoughts in the Silence

So many thoughts abound

As we settle into silence

This deep pervading Silence

Where Love abides

Where all is well

The ‘place’ to which

We are constantly invited

This place of stillness

In the depths of our heart

Where the every day

And all that is contained within it

Meets the Ever-Present Love

Which not only invites us

But which also welcomes us

And embraces us

This Love holds us

And all that we bring

In this precious habitation

Of prayer
