Oil on canvas

Quiet stillness fills me as I listen

to a voice deep within

a voice, which, beckons and invites

me to a deepening

as I step quietly into this sacred

and familiar place of prayer.


This is a well-known place of the spiritual,

where the connection with a personal God

is all about an intimate moment, a brief encounter in time

where I experience a deep yearning within my heart.


In the stillness of Godís presence I feel his guidance

as I follow his summoning me along a path of interior longing.


I am moved to respond to an invitation,

which calls me to go inward.

As I sit contemplatively waiting for God

to speak to my heart

I am moved by this subtle breeze which invites and

challenges me

to go deep within to find Godís invitation

to be birthed anew.
