Tom & I are off on retreat to Anacortes again tomorrow. I really look forward to these times of refreshment and renewal. I thought that this was a good time to share with you another of my favourite Celtic prayers that I use when trying to focus. I thought that you would also enjoy this art from the Book of Kells
I Weave a Silence
I weave a silence onto my lips,
I weave a silence into my mind,
I weave a silence within my heart.
I close my ears to distractions,
I close my eyes to attractions
I close my heart to temptations.
Calm me, Lord, as you calmed the storm,
Still me, Lord, keep me from harm,
Let all tumult within me cease,
Enfold me in your peace.
