Pause for Prayer: SUNDAY 9/6

This thought's a Sabbath pearl, Lord,
and reads as well from the bottom up
as it does 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 day, astonish me!
Help me stand still 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...

- The lines in the graphic above 
are taken from Messenger by Mary Oliver.
