Holy Saturday- The Pause

My friend, Sarah Calvert, shared this post this morning on her Facebook feed. I thought it both wise and worth sharing:

Grateful for the Holy Saturday pause. We don’t pause enough. Pause to breathe. Pause before speaking. Pause to listen to others well, and pause in the seeming silence. Pause to enjoy.

May our pauses bring us wisdom and solace and gratitude.    -Sarah Calvert
