It’s a cold and frosty morn,
the phrase, “earth stood hard as iron”
is lived out beneath my feet
the air hangs still, misty breaths swirl in my face as I breathe
Oh Precious Holy One!
The day is here, this is the moment.
Thank you for this stillness
I take this pause, in amongst all the busyness
and give thanks that I live!
in all of the demands in this season,
may we be able to pause
may we be able to take a moment
to still in the world
that even in a bleak midwinter, there is hope
there is YOU
