Little Quiet Moments

This morning I finished my Morning Devotions with such a sense of peace and well-being. I had not begun that way.

Some mornings when I arise, my mind instantly fills with thoughts of work not completed yesterday and tasks waiting to be started today, and it takes time for me to settle into my prayers and readings. This morning began this way, but as I delved deeper into the readings for today, I felt less and less distracted by my thoughts and became more focused on the message that Our Lord wants us to hear, to obey, to live.

Love God, Love your Neighbor, Love your Self.

Here in these little quiet moments, before the world spins around to the day side, I find peace in my heart through these words of comfort, solace, and instruction. And in that peace, I find a clearness of mind in which I feel certain that God is smiling down upon us and wishing us all the happiness and joy that only God’s Love can give to us, if we only take the time to  quieten ourselves and let God bestow it upon us.

May the Peace of Christ, the Love of God, and the Fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you today and with everyone you meet, each one your neighbor.

Merry Christmas to all our Orthodox Sisters and Brothers.
