Magical Morning Meditations at Walden Pond

  • October 18, 2016

img_7725 Blessed by nature, silence, exercise, and spirit filled sharing, WCUC prayer walkers continue to delight in God’s creation and relish in the company of one another.  Each week we gather to share some of life’s joys and sorrows,  walk in silence with intention around beautiful Walden Pond, and then close with observations, insights, and reflections.  Join us on Mondays at 9:30am…newcomers are always welcome!

“Living in the center of the ache and awe.”
From Carrie Newcomer’s song, Throw Me a Line

I wish you enough

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how grey the day may appear.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.
I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.

A poem shared by Linda Watskin on 10/17:

Prayers Like Shoes

I wear prayers like shoesfullsizerender-3
pull em on quiet each morning
take me through the uncertain day
don’t know
what knock me off course
sit up in bed
pull on the right
then the left
before shower before teeth
my mama’s gift
to walk me through lifeimg_7727
she wore strong ones
the kind steady your ankles
i know
cause when her man left/ her children
gone/ her eldest son without goodbye
they the only ones keep her
i saw her
still standing
mama passed
some things to me
ma  smile   sense of discipline
subtle behindimg_7731
but best passed on
girl you go to God
and get you some good shoes
cause this life ain’t steady ground
now I don’t wear hers
you take em with you you know
but i suspect they made by the same company
pull em on each morning
first the right   then the left
best piece a dress
i got
