Give joy to the soul of Your servant, for to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.  – Ps 86:4

Reflection. The holiday season can be hectic.  Learn to pace yourself.  A bird needs its nest, a bee needs its hive, and every human soul needs some pillow talk with God.  St. Augustine said, “Our hearts are restless until they rest in You, O Lord.”  Resting in God’s love, without saying anything, is the purest form of prayer.

Prayer. Holy Spirit, help me to enjoy the silence of Your presence.
