朋友對我說, let ourselves beloved.


Be loved, by yourself.
Be loved, by God.

He is ready to meet you
where you are.

The Sacrament of Waiting

一下子 就過了十個多月

唉~ 忙是不錯 不過也是藉口
提不出那半丁點兒的力量 推動一下

由靜止(stillness)到運行(motion) 差別
往往就是這 看似很微細
但又異常困難 的一個起步

(Stirrings of my heart…)
看見這首詩 很喜歡 想記載下來

The Sacrament of Waiting
Macrina Wiederkehr

she celebrated the sacrament of letting go.
First she surrendered her green,
then the orange, yellow, and red
finally she let go of her brown.
Shedding her last leaf
she stood empty and silent, stripped bare.
Leaning against the winter sky
she began her vigil of trust.

Shedding her last leaf
she watched its journey to the ground.
She stood in silence
wearing the color of emptiness,
her branches wondering;
How do you give shade with so much gone?

And then,
the sacrament of waiting began.
The sunrise and sunset watched with tenderness.
Clothing her with silhouettes
they kept her hope alive.

They helped her understand that
her vulnerability,
her dependence and need,
her emptiness,
her readiness to receive
were giving her a new kind of beauty.
Every morning and every evening they stood in silence
and celebrated together
the sacrament of waiting.
