The Next Dawn – 3rd in the Invited in Meditation Series (2018) $15
Perhaps the time has come for a new beginning. Have you been longing for the night to end? Do you sense the Next Dawn is beginning to lift the obscurity in an area of your life? Are you on a threshold of waiting or gathering courage to step through?
I welcome you to enter and be met.
New beginnings are filled with joyful anticipation and the occasional twinge of fear at all the unknowns. You are saying yes to what has never happened before!
The silhouettes of dawn hide many of the details that will be exposed at fullness of daylight. What will emerge?
The dawn has its own mystery and sacred luminosity which holds the many possibilities of the day and yet lingers in the silent stillness of the night.
It is my hope and prayer that these pages will accompany you into your Next Dawn where hope and promise, rays of new light and budding life,
will usher in tender and tenacious new growth and wild (authentic and free) thriving. This spiritual practice of meditation carries and sustains us in
the stormy and desolate seasons that come.
A special thank you to my dear friends who have contributed to this book. Your wisdom and experiences have deeply impacted my life. It is an honor to know you; a joy to share the past and Next Dawns of love with you!
The dawn starts in silence, (unless you have a waking infant or whining new puppy), and slowly gets louder and longer into the busyness of the day. Have you ever sat and noticed the waking of a day? There is no rushing it – it will take as long as it takes. Enter deeply into silence for it is God’s first language and there is much to be “heard”.
Let us honour and welcome The Next Dawn. ~Lorie

“You are invited to enter into a series of contemplative meditations that will lead you deeper into Love. There are 31 daily reflective writings with photographs of heart shapes found in nature. I discovered these “messages of grace” while on an awakening journey with Love. Lingering with them became a passage into the real, yet mysterious, depths of the beautiful Presence of Love. My hope and trust is that you will also experience the grace of deepening Love, intimacy, and transformation through these invitations.” – Lorie
This little book of daily meditations holds 31 invitations full of sketches, photos, quotes, and reflections to affirm and comfort you on your unique pilgrimage of grief. You will be met in the pain and suffering of your past and present losses and the sorrows that have impacted you deeply, changed your life, and cracked you open to your core.
“In passing through the deepest of waters with the complicated death of my youngest daughter, I found that lots of words are not always a gift, but simple beauty always is. These images and reflections continue to be a healing balm to the tender wounds of my heart and life. I trust The Eternal One to accompany us as we tap into the emerging energies of our Sacred Source of Love, which generates the new life that emerges deep within and bestows “grace upon grace.” – Lorie
