I’ve decided to make a sort of scrapbook or commonplace book for Advent. Collecting images and words that speak to me. I thought maybe someone else might like to ponder along with me. Please share your thoughts about the words and images.
“As my prayer became more attentive and inward,~~Søren Kierkegaard~~
I had less and less to say.
I finally became completely silent.
I started to listen.
I first thought that praying entailed speaking.
I then learnt that praying is hearing,
not merely being silent.
This is how it is.
To pray does not mean to listen to oneself speaking,
Prayer involves becoming silent,
And waiting until God is heard.”
The World I Live In
I have refused to live locked in the orderly house of reasons and proofs; The world I live in and believe in is wider than that. And anyway. what’s wrong with Maybe? You wouldn’t believe what once or twice I have seen. I’ll just tell you this: only if there are angels in your head will you ever, possibly, see one. Mary Oliver
