choosing to hush

Be intentional about your time 
and try to set some aside to write and create 
at the same time every day.  
I suggest the morning, 
when you and the day are both new again.  
Contemplate, focus, deliberate - 
take your time and make it sacred again.
Dave Harrity - Making Manifest

even in sleep
my mind can find ways
to rush, race, circling thoughts
revisiting the past day
building visions
of what is to come

to slow myself is contrary 
to our modern natures
but each morning I can choose
to hush
into the new day
finding the holy
and mercies fresh

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
    his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
    great is thy faithfulness.

You just grabbed me. Every night for the past couple years I'm traveling around and about the world, through families, and doing so much at night that I wake up tired and worn out most of the day. HMM! You really caught my attention. Again, WOW!!
