    Mental Exercise

    It’s a quiet Monday. A little too quiet. I prefer the busy, whirling activity of work, but I don’t feel well, so here I am.

The thirsty ground is soaking in the heaven-sent water. My soul is finding balance in the Maker of seen and unseen. In the solace of today, without the interruptions, I know…
