Hand on heart in silence with soul friend Patience I prayed to love without judgment. Life with Jean, Michael, Judah and friends plus Seren care provided great love practice on my two visits there and theirs here between for Christopher and Mary Susan’s wedding. Three weeks later we rejoiced with Rhonda, Karen, two Betsys and all at Dave and Charissa’s wedding. In Group Spiritual Direction at the Bellfry Retreat and a season of weekly Shalem sessions I discovered loving listening, heart-based responding. With Christians Practicing Yoga my whole body breath prayer became “Jesus, teach me Love” Our paths crossed: Where you headed? asked Harriet. To my childcare job with Lukas Vega, I smiled. It’s Love, it’s all Love! she replied. YES. Falling asleep I pictured dear ones representing each Mulled Word— friends, family members, authors. Beside the weddings Jim and I grew in love on four 10K walks and another Chincoteague trip. For love of Mother Earth I joined pipeline protesters, sang We Shall Overcome in the paddy wagon and paid bail.
