Instead of a wood working post. I am rebloging a post from one of my favorite blogs, Cast Light. Today’s thought is particularly interesting to me as I’ve been having similar thoughts lately.
“Older now, you find holiness in anything that continues.” – Naomi Shibab Nye
As the days go faster and we go slower, we may long for days gone by, our youth. But the days slow when we remain squarely within each one, fully aware and awake. Wiser from what was and hope-filled for what is to come. The wide path becomes narrow and we can see and appreciate what is most important.
As the need to prove oneself subsides, moments linger and connections grow deeper. Creating and being replace competing and doing. And if we are fortunate to find clarity in the days when we are in them, we discover what has been there the entire time…love expands, multiples, grows, sustains and is what we are here to do. Our moments become holy.
