Blogrimage Day 3.
I took pictures today. I had an amazing day, but all day, I also was deeply troubled, thinking about being a pastor. When I got home from an excursion with my friend Bobby I sat to think. Thinking, I saw that life is not what we expect from it, and it’s not often pleasant, but it’s also full of beauty.
I think this afternoon, I learned to shut up.
When I went and spoke to my pastor about all of this thinking I had been doing, I learned a gift called shut up. I learned the value of silence tonight.
I had a meaningful open dialogue with my pastor about everything I’ve been going through, and I shared my feelings, he was so loving and kind. There came a point of silence where we just looked at each other, and knew everything.
I learned the value of silence, and rejoiced in the quiet power of God’s grace, forgiveness and the harmony of all things according to their reconciliation.
God, I thank you for the blogrimage, for the journey i’m learning. Today’s work of art was nothing more than the experience of silence and it was gorgeous.
