Life Beside the Stream
My prayer life goes back before my earliest memories. I think my parents must have taught me to pray while I was still in the cradle.
Even in my late 20s when I walked away from the church of my upbringing and stayed away from religion for years, I still found myself talking to God.
Now it’s like living next to a stream. The sound of the water is always there, and I listen to it off and on all day -- sometimes even when I wake up in the middle of the night.
The stream is the presence of the Divine. The listening is my prayer.
