Pause for Prayer: SUNDAY 9/7

This thought's a Sabbath pearl, Lord,
and reads as well from bottom up
as from the top on down:
Learning to be astonished,
mostly standing still:
that's my work, what matters -
of this, Lord, keep me mindful...
This Sabbath, then, astonish me,
help me stand still just long enough
to be surprised, to be amazed
that standing still's my work
and is what truly matters:
of this, Lord, keep me mindful...

- For more on today as Sabbath, see this challenge
- The lines in the graphic above are taken from Messenger by Mary Oliver.
