Sacred Sunday

While every day is a “holy day” in my view, Sunday is a special day for a lot of folks, so I thought I’d share my own sacred Sunday…..

Sunday snow

Enjoying God in my own way today, in perfect silence and gratitude.  Who needs books and words right now?

To be honest, I’m not a big fan of snow any more.  When I was a kid, I craved snow days, but that was probably more about missing school than playing in the snow.  I absolutely cannot drive in the stuff.  Yesterday, I got home just as the gravel driveway was starting to turn white but it hadn’t started sticking on the paved roads yet, and it wasn’t slippery then.  But early this morning with no traffic on the road, standing outside in the snow, it was just so pretty and so quiet, like when I go out on the porch really late at night when people are in bed, no cars are out making noise, and I look up at that sky full of stars, and it all feels so, well holy and just kind of “wholly” connected and pretty amazing.

The good news is the sun is out now, the temperature is up, and most of the snow has melted already except a little in the back of the house where the sun hasn’t really hit it yet today.  It’s mostly slush now, though.

I really enjoy those kind of quiet, deep moments when I just feel  intensely connected to God, to all.

Hope you’re enjoying your day wherever you are!
