The river is a mirror of life’s journey.
Listening to the river and letting it speak in the stillness is an invitation to listening to the deeper rhythms of our life, and the peace and harmony of God in all of life’s experiences.
In Warrandyte we have the privilege of a beautiful river to walk by and contemplate all that is speaks to our souls.
Here is a picture of another river in the small village of Migne Auxances near Poitiers in France that refreshed my husband and I in 2005.
I invite you to let the river speak to you in either the picture or the poem by William Stafford. “Ask Me”, first appeared in The New Yorker, 1975
