Kavanah, a Jewish term for attentiveness to God -- an act or appreciation of being able to stand in the presence of God.
I learned this from a friend's post, We Are One. My friend, Ellen, blogs at Nana Knits and Jams and her posts are some of my favorites to read in the blogosphere. So often she says things that I read and think, wish I'd written that. This is one of those, it resonates Truth. Simple truth. Essential truth. Please do me the favor of clicking over to Nana Knits and Jams to read We Are One. And may you be blessed (as I was) for it!
While you're there enjoy some of her other posts.
In a few weeks I'm heading off to an annual women's retreat. I hope I'll find this kind of refreshing and renewal of mind and spirit.
