A saint’s cell and solitude and silence

St. Kevin's cell at Glendalough, Ireland circa 600s

Another lovely day, God!

Thank YOU! This morning we went back in time – back to the 600s in Glendalough. St. Kevin had gone off to be holy and ended up founding a monastery back in the 600s. I felt like I was back there too.  Not so much at the site of the monastery but very much so at the site of St. Kevin’s cell.  It was so quiet and so green and so peaceful there.

Ah, solitude is one of the Disciplines, isn’t it God.

Solitude and silence do make both Time and Space for You, God.

Thank You for this trip. Thank You for saints of by-gone years. Thank You for wanting a closer, clearer connection with each on of us. The label saint throws us off, God. It makes an ALL or NOTHING dichotomy out of what I feel is a natural Both And.  We are both of this World and AND of Your Kingdom of Love and Light and Laughter!

And now, God, being still IN this world — I am taking my dear body off to bed!  SLEEP (for me, anyway) could be considered another one of the Disciplines by which we come closer to You. Surely I get out of sorts and full of static when I am tired or just not fully rested. So thank You for this time of travel in which I have rested and I have realized the sleep deficit in which I was living!

How Simple are the keystones of Right Living. Live within (well within) our limits — so that, when need be — we have the ability to give. And now, Good Night!

Story teller,

Posted in an invitation to abundant life, authority over my life, Balancing and adjustments, both / and, breathing in Your Spirit, compassion to care for myself, connecting, sacred space, solitude and silence
