The Middle of the River

Sensations of wind swirling.
Striving successfully against the current.
Countless shades of green singing.
Attention. Curiosity, Fascination.

What might be around the next bend?
I release the question to float downstream.

Being here
with my mind, my body, my spirit– all of who I am–
is fully engaging.


My prayer response:

For this moment, and its fullness, I give thanks. For the ability to experience it, I give thanks.


Biblical touchstones:

  • So we do not lose heart. Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:16
  • You show me the path of life… Psalm 16:11


Invitation to prayer:
What prayers are emerging in your heart, mind, and body?
Pray them now.
