“Quiet Moment” – The quiet at dawn or dusk provides a peace that speaks deeply into our being: a moment to pause, take in the beauty or reflect on our su and the goodness in out lives….it is a time of transition, from light to dark, or dark to light; a moment to pause when we can reflect on our own thoughts, or listen and become attuned to our surroundings and feel a belonging to our environment. We note the changing times, colors, and sounds. Our senses are awakened to the beauty of tranquility, and the vastness of nature.
In the quiet of this scene, we envision two seated on a boat in the middle of the water, away from the shore, in friendly conversation, sharing in a heart-to-heart moment of peaceful words that drench the soul with healing; a time of caring, of confession, of having another help carry one’s burdens by listening, understanding, validating. Pausing to speak honestly, bringing thoughts and feelings out into the open, where shame and guilt can no longer keep them hidden and in the dark, allowing light to shine and remove any darkness with peace in its place. The beginning of healing!
