Monday Morning Meditation 11-22-21

Psalm 62:1-2

For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation.
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall never be shaken.

It is Monday of Thanksgiving week.  Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  I get up, make breakfast and start preparing for the meal.  We turn on the Thanksgiving Day parade and spend a quiet morning together. 

Whether it is just us or we have family over, it is a wonderful day.  Friday (black Friday according to the retailers), we purchase a tree from a local tree farm, and start to decorate for Christmas.  It again is a wonderful day of family life. 

Before any of this happens, however, is anything but peaceful.  As my wife and I are both clergy we each have multiple services to prepare before we can take time off and, of course, our daughter has homework to finish.  The days before a holiday can be quite hectic.

I’m sure things are similar for many of you, no matter what your occupation.  In today’s world, taking time off comes with a price, and that is unfortunate.

However, we can find those moments, and that is the point of Monday Morning Meditation – to take a moment before everything gets crazy and sit in silence before the Lord.

For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation.
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall never be shaken.

I pray you have a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration, and that you can give yourself a moment for your soul to wait in silence.

Peace,

Pastor Bill
