While We Wait (Praying through Advent)

Listen. Sssshh.

Peace.
Peace be with you
like the sun warming your face,
like a soft teddy bear in your arms for comfort,
like the sight of a blue heron standing still along a creek.
Peace.

Do you hear God's whisper?

Peace.
Peace in your tossing & turning.
Now turn, in your turning, toward me
like Orion ever turning toward Taurus in the sky,
like a cat returning to a fireplace hearth for warmth.
Peace.

Hear God speaking peace to all people.

Peace.

Based on Psalm 85:8.
