As the week unfolds
there is conflict, urgency, and loss.
I imagine Jesus reaching for these words
in the prayerbook of his soul.

“Surely I have stilled and quieted my soul,
like a weaned child with his mother,
like a weaned child is my soul within me.”  (Psalm 131:2 Word English Bible)

Not a nursing child
dependent still and clinging.

A weaned child
more experienced in the world.
seeking quiet in the heart of life.

I imagine Jesus reaching for these words
centering himself in the deepest part of self
and from there being Love.

And we can too.
