The Stillness

The Stillness
The Gift of Family #3

 

In a world of noise and rush
With peace and silence hardly found
When each moment demands of us
All our effort while life crowds ‘round

In those moments we can choose
To heed the unexpected gift
Daughter’s laughter, son’s smile let loose
The Tigers game, or kite adrift

All these glimpses, rare and sweet
Savored and cherished as they come
Become the stillness where may meet
The heart and its exalted One
