welcomed silence

I’m thankful this morning for:

snow that reminds me that my sins have been forgiven

and

the physical space across the street from our house,

a graveyard that strips self-protection and induces freedom to grieve.

 

“For I have given rest to the weary and joy to the sorrowing.”

“The day is coming,” says the LORD, “when all Jerusalem will be rebuilt for me, from the Tower of Hananel to the Corner Gate. A measuring line will be stretched out over the hill of Gareb and across to Goah. And the entire area—including the graveyard and ash dump in the valley, and all the fields out to the Kidron Valley on the east as far as the Horse Gate—will be holy to the LORD. The city will never again be captured or destroyed.”

~ Jeremiah 31
