I will gentle myself in stillness that though the storm around me might still rage and howl, my spirit shall settle. There is work to be done. Important work for us all. Historic work, critical work, the work of peacemakers and truth tellers.
I will gentle myself in stillness that the passions inside me may settle for this moment and allow for clarity and good judgment. Around me the storm rages and howls and makes it hard to hear each voice crying out, and those voices must be heard.
I will gentle myself in stillness for there is much work to be done and I will need to bring everything I have within me into this storm to help birth this change in the world.
