Praise the beauty of today! There’s a strong cool wind swaying over thick giant oak trees; bright hot sun casts waving shadows on their leaves as hoarfrost. Perched on the deck my eyes in awe, a mini forest glorifies God’s nature with barely a cloud in blue sky, angels ministering over the land, my heart beats faster as I commune with the universe. My pen flows with mystery then beauty seizes my senses.
A strong Southeast blows
full oak branches glisten as snow
Spirit breathes on paper
Catherine of Siena ASKING GOD…?
Pray Tell – Where is Virtuous Love found?
God’s answer to Catherine of Siena is “in our neighbors.”
She agrees, “because I can’t show my Creator my love for Him directly, so I have to use my neighbors and do for them the service I cannot do for God.”
“Love your neighbor as yourself.” What a powerful directive to inflame minds!
To love foes as friends
each as brother and sister
there, is virtuous love
Saint Catherine of Siena, pray for us
Ships in deep water
Life sails over rough currents
Peace lies very deep
“I lost my heart to the ocean and with it a piece of my soul.” –Johanna Kauffman
POINT TO PONDER
Sometimes a dangerous prayer is necessary.
For any one who may doubt the existence of God, try shouting out, “God, if you are real, show me.”
I believe He will show you…and let me know what happens…
