A Halloween Children\’s Story

\”The Green Ribbon\”
 
Once there was a girl named Jenny.
She was like all the other girls,
Except for one thing.
She always wore a green ribbon
Around her neck.
There was a boy named Alfred
In her class.
Alfred liked Jenny,
And Jenny liked Alfred.
One day he asked her,
\”Why do you wear that ribbon
All the time?\”
\”I cannot tell you,\” said Jenny.
But Alfred kep asking,
\”Why do you wear it?\”
And Jenny would say,
\”It is not important.\”
Jenny and Alfred grew up
And fell in love.
One day they got married.
After the wedding,
Alfred said,
\”Now that we\’re married,
\”You must tell me
About the green ribbon.\”
\”You still must wait,\”
Said Jenny.
\”I will tell you
When the right time comes.\”
Years passed.
Alfred and Jenny grew old.
One day Jenny became very sick.
The doctor told her
She was dying.
Jenny called Alfred to her side.
\”Alfred,\” she said,
Now I can tell you
About the green ribbon.
Untie it,
And you will see
Why I could not tell you before.\”
Slowly and carefully,
Alfred untied the ribbon,
And Jenny\’s head fell off.
 
Have you read this story?
I would love to hear from you!
It\’s one of my favorites!
 
I read it to my children all the time!

Silence And Time

\”A quick glance at (the photograph) and we might walk away, thinking it drab and over-regulated. A slower glance, and (the photograph) reveals an infinitude of subtle hues and shifting verticals. Its beauty, like so much we see, reveals itself only in time. Silence is making–friends–with–time. It does not fight it or waste it; it refuses to run after it. Silence floats free with time, letting the pattern of the moments unfold at its own pace. It is a way of becoming free, not only for the practical advantage of being able to see the beauty in what is gray, for example, but at a far deeper level. In silence we break the hold time has on us, and accept in practice that our true home is in eternity.\”
~Sister Wendy Beckett

Do you find Time to bathe in the Beauty of Silence? How? I would love to hear from you!
