Breathing In…Breathing out…

Have you ever breathed in the morning?

Deeply inhaled the fullness, the freshness, the beauty of the new day….

Held it within as it expanded your lungs…

and ever so slowly exhaled all the possibilities and hopes out before you?

Have you ever  breathed in the noontime?

Paused and deeply inhaled the bustle of mid day…

Held it within as the busy-ness of it all met with the peace within…

and then exhaled this inner calmness into the world around you?

Have you ever breathed in the evening?

Deeply inhaled all the day contained within the confines of your chest…

and then slowly exhaled, surrendering all into the vastness of the night?

God’s first language is silence.

It is here we find peace.

May this weekend be filled with deep breathing in….and long, letting go breathing outs.

May the breathing in…and the breathing out….become a prayer without ceasing.


“Pray without ceasing.  In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.”

1 Thes 5:17-18
