Waking up

Woke up earlier than planned, which I took as an opportunity for coffeehouse time before the hubub. Glad I did, too. I just moved outside to enjoy the cool and quiet.

Stillness has been a stranger to me, my own fault. I don't even realize it until I take a moment, pick a piece of sky, and look. After brief seconds, I realize I have failed to see what I am seeing now, that I have been absent. Much goodness has passed me by-- no, it has been there all the while, but gone unnoticed.

Thank you, God, for awakening me, even for but a moment. Help me resist the temptation to fill such moments with anything but You.
