SECLUSION, IN—As I head into seclusion, to open and to contemplate and to await answers to questions ill formed, I’d like to wish each of you a happy and peaceful and pleasant holiday and new year.
Winter is here, and for many, it is a season of stress: holidays and snows and winds and freezing temperatures and pressures from both family and peers.
I hope you find some time in this busy season for a little introspection. Some time to sit quietly and be still and to contemplate the things that are important in your life. I hope you find new ways to nurture that which is important and to resolve to stop pursuing that which is frivolous and futile.
And as you sit quietly, as you grow still in contemplation of these things, I hope you remember one thing most of all:
God moves through the heart and not through the head. Open your heart and be still and be patient and soon you’ll hear Her whispers.
I’ll be out of touch for anywhere from two weeks to two months. In that time—other than from family—I won’t be answering emails or comments to posts or much of anything (though I will read all of these).
If you want to be informed upon my return (and you aren’t already subscribed), simply follow this blog by email or RSS or copy http://waynewirs.com into your News Reader, and when I upload new posts, you’ll be sure to see them.
Have a happy and peaceful and joyous holiday season.
