Jesus was 40 days and nights in the desert. Noah and the animals were 40 days and nights on the Ark. Moses spent 40 years in the desert with the Jewish children of Egypt. I’m not sure what is magical about the number 40, but when I turned 40 I knew I’d hit middle age. Well, technically it will be middle age if I make it to the great age of 80… But perhaps I am splitting hairs. I’m having fun being nonsensical. Talking about prayer does not have to be serious and disciplined or aesthetic. It can be a fun act of love. Just showing up to the page today.
Today I am resting. I am calm. I am feeling good.
