Israel Mourns Near the Waters of Babylon
Despite the pain, suffering, and grief that may be today’s burden, let me not forget to give thanks for the gifts of family, friends, and unexpected kindnesses.
By the streams of Babylon
we sat and wept
when we remembered Zion.
On the aspens of that land
we hung up our harps. Psalm 137:1-2
The language of God is silence. I must be silent, too, in order for my heart to hear and accept what the Lord is teaching me.
Then they came to Capernaum, and on the sabbath Jesus entered the synagogue and taught. Mark 1:21
