Daily 5 - Year 4, Day 3

Today's Daily 5:

  1. lazy morning
  2. painting with A
  3. cupcakes and conversation with a long time friend
  4. baby L's smile
  5. a truly random collection of titles that I can't wait to read purchased on an impromptu bookstore trip

Friday Reflections, August 24, 2012

Today's reflection is a brief excerpt from Richard Rohr about silence, and it is moving me deeply.

Silence is the language of God, and the only language deep enough to absorb all the contradictions and failures that we are holding against ourselves. God loves us silently, because God has no case to make against us. Silent communion absorbs our self-hatred, as every lover knows.
(Richard Rohr -Adapted from Simplicity, p. 97)
