Blue Shell by Ethan Harper

This beautiful shell painting reminds me of the magnificent beaches I encountered during my youth, hearing for the first time the ocean’s roar  as I placed the shell to my ear.


Lone shell brushed by waves

Whispering life inside

Mother’s shells in a jar

My mantra for today is to go to the ocean hopefully very soon.

Love is something remarkable…

Love from the heart – often and always.

When we love, God gives us a constant outpouring of grace for the good of others.

Patient perseverance will be our reward.

Love gives us everything that we need and desire.

Something so remarkable! around the corner.

Aim for restoration and peace will be given you.

“They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings of eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.”

–Isaiah 40:31

Thanks so much to blacklion2 for completing this post with vigor:

“WE ask for too little.  We are eagles and we should soar and never land until we must.  Then in palm.”

“Every piece of a puzzle is important, just as every aspect f life and every human being…all the pieces make a vital contribution to the whole picture.

–Melannie Svoboda, SND

Within the circle of prophets, Jesus speaks to Sister Clare to give us concrete direction:

“I am rebirthing a nation; be in posture of readiness; take care of others, pray daily, your sufferings are as sacks of gold.”

Let us pray for God to help us solve the puzzles of life and receive good solutions.
