In these days leading up to Easter, I am more determined than ever to work in peace, think in peace, listen in peace.  To let my soul grow and expand in quiet expectation; to hear what God will whisper to my heart.

My soul is grown quiet.  Easter is coming with candy and bunnies and baskets.  As a child I always had a new dress with shiny shoes.

But in the midst of the fun, what I want most is time to really think about it; to let the meaning of things soak into the depths of me.

So thank you God.  You knew what was coming…but you did it anyway.
