Quiet Day Contemplation

Here you cross a threshold –
A door to enter in.
We ask that you be present now;
Forgive yourself your sin.
Your worries and the cares of life
Will wait for your return.
So take a breath and clear your thoughts,
There’s so much here to learn.
Let go of expectation
And open up your mind.
Free your heart from troubles,
Look up – and you might find
A Santa dressed in a suit of red,
Just wandering up the stairs,
To make you wonder if his sack
Is a reminder of gifts he bears,
Of open hearts and gladness
And giving love to children, small.
Perhaps his presents are reminders
Of the greatest presence of all.
Look up, Christ tells his disciples,
And see what’s really there.
Be present in the now, not then,
And show your loving care.
