Silent Saturday

after the Good Friday service

Good Morning, God!

After what seems like a very long time . . . I am back . . . daring to write again. I was stopped by a day in which four or five folks started following me. Yikes! This really was a public place. Not just my private meanderings.

That is something we all forget, isn’t it? That we ourselves, our lives, our words and our thoughts even, have a wider effect. And, so when I take myself to a church service . . . or to Centering Prayer as I am this morning . . . I am WANTING Your help. Knowing I need help . . . knowing that being human is a big and complex deal.

I remember YEARS ago, complaining to You that the human brain was too thin to deal with my powerful reptilian brain. Sigh. I do have upwellings of my deeper selves. But, they have ENERGY and STRENGTH in them! They are MY RESPONSIBILITY to manage . . . to love and care for. Double sigh!

So, today, Silent Saturday, — that profound gap between the Death of Jesus and the Resurrection of Jesus — seems like a very good time to resume our conversation. I think it was Father Keating who said, “Silence is God’s first language. All else is a poor translation.”

Ah, help me to be silent, too. And to listen with my heart.

Story teller,

    Thank you, Margie, for blessing my Holy Saturday…. indeed, it has been so long that when I first saw “A Moment With God” in my email, I couldn’t think what it might be until I opened it! So do write more often, please! A loving but growing forgetful follower, ML…

    You have always been perceived as a deeply spiritual and emotionally balanced person. Your openness and sharing is a great strength and admirable trait. Thank you for including me in your insights and thoughts. Have a Blessed Easter
