Behold, the quiet time comes.
Like twilight, its deep shadows spread, stilling frantic faith with a cool hand of calm. Be still now. Be quiet. Call within for ancient thoughts to arise, give them room to simply be. Wisdom is a well where sacred waters reflect the face that watches, for only still waters reflect the moon, untroubled by winds of ceaseless change.
Be still. Be ready. The quiet time comes.
Words above by The Right Reverend Steven Charleston, Interim Dean, St. Paul's Cathedral, Oklahoma City, OK; Diocese of Oklahoma
