Matthew 14:22-24

Immediately [Jesus] made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, 

With you

I see you there and want to be with you. The new day dawns, and I want no more drama, no issues or questions to resolve, just quiet. With you.

I know that sounds selfish, especially when millions struggle with hunger, conflict, disease, heartache and sorrow. It's the human condition. Why should I have a little peace?  

But you, too, wanted to be quiet, survey the lake and sky, feel the breeze on your skin and let it all transport you into the depth of your soul where you know that Mystery, the Love who stills the heart and awakens a smile of knowing.

You needed that, and so do I.

Today I see you on that hillside, and I am there with you, watching as you look beyond the blue waters, your soul resting in the grace of a Love I have wanted to know all my life.

I know it here, with you.

Storms will come, anxious days when threats and misunderstandings abound. But I will remember the quiet of this time, the stillness of your heart encompassing my own.

I go to this day knowing … what it is to be with you here.

Beloved One, may I live your peace, today.

Pr. David L. Miller
