Unwrapped peace

Silence, stillness,
the fluttering wings of birds at feeders
seeking their winter provision.
Peace that comes
with the knowledge that I am back
exactly where God has rooted me
in this season of waiting
for what we know we have already received
for He Is here
Immanuel
God with us.

What gifts have you unwrapped today?  Come share at Emily's.

The chickadee is one of my favorite spiritual images. We had a group of them land outside our kitchen and I learned so much watching their little community work together to get the food, all getting turns to eat and to stand guard for danger, ie our cats! They constantly remind me that God always provides, and that my community of faith is there to do this journey with! My unwrapped gift today is humility...

What a beautiful piece of poetry! My heart can breath. I long for that stillness and silence. Blessings from Tuesdays Unwrapped.
