I am high energy
I talk fast
I laugh loud
I'm not good at silence (any one who has met me will attest to that)
Listening without 'adding to' does not come naturally to me
And so this week as I journey toward Easter I am trying to slow, to quiet my heart and to learn the gentle rhythms of Grace.
Easter is the most important of all my celebrations in a year but I feel like it becomes squeezed out and turns into a chocolate frenzy with a sideways nod to the Jesus who took my place on death row.
This week I want to slow my words, let my loud laugh become gentle joy and wait in silence for the gentle whisper that says it all and more.
