The calm of the water reflects the trees
Today the picture of the trees reflected in the lake caught my attention? When I am calm, what is reflected in me? What is the value of being able to see the reflection of others?
Yesterday I received affirmation and encouragement from that affirmation from several and it really made a difference. Now I hope I can affirm and encourage others today.
I want to share with you a quote from the 13th century mystic, Mechthild of Magdeburg:
"There is No Lord in all the world
Who lives in all his dwelling at once
Save God alone.
He lives in the peace of holy love
And whispers with his love
In the narrow confines of the soul."
That quote gives us matter to reflect on today!
