blessings of this day
sing in silence of the night
closing in with grace
enticing me deeper still
into Your world of hushed joy
These lines came to me last night when I was writing in my journal. Tuesday was busy. For several days I spent time on the phone trying to track down a pharmacy that had the Shingrix vaccination (shingles) shot available. On my last call, I hit the jackpot! They had one dose left for this week. First come, first served.
D and I shot out of here and got there in time for me to claim the last dose! So I was pretty psyched, after days of getting nowhere.
Maybe it sounds crazy (to some of you) to get all happy about getting a vaccination shot. Well…when you’re my age, and you know you’re a candidate for shingles, it’s a blessing to receive a poke in the arm!

That photo, and your words/poem are so beautiful…I have joy-tears in my eyes. We need that time of silence and hushing to reflect, renew, refresh and endure the noise and the chaos in the world.
I like to take late night or very early morning walks with my dog Cooper. I feel like he and I are the only two in the world who are awake (even tho’ I know that’s not true 🙂 ) and while we walk I can breathe, pray, think, mediate on the beauty in nature. 🙂
I’m so glad 🙂 you got that shingles vac/shot. I hear the shingles can be really painful and awful.
