Gentleness of You

hands softly touching grass


Can we begin the morning in the most gentle way possible? Simply being? Just knowing in the silence that God is already here.


Today God, I ask to breathe in the tenderness of you, like morning light
moving softly as the trees appear, first as dark silhouettes.
Then the sun keeps rising, and trunks and branches take on color
as if peace rises within them.
From this tranquil place, the day opens wide.
Help me to enter it, carrying you gently.


How can you bring more of God’s softness into your life today? Can you slow down in the daily tasks that you have performed hundreds of times, and touch the world more gently?
