FINDING PEACE

A THOUGHT AND MEDITATION

“Don’t think.  Don’t get lost in your thoughts.  Your thoughts are a veil on the face of the moon.  That moon is your heart.  So let them go — Just let them fall into the water.”

–Rumi

During this last week in November, we have the feast of Thanksgiving to thank for.  The opportunity to take time for a little reflection and close the door to a hurried world…and open our heart to grateful living.

So may this week not catch you off guard, but rejoice in remembering a little, dreaming a little, each day is your day.

A THOUGHT AND MEDITATION

Teach me how to trust my heart, my mind, my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit.

“Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my sacred space and love beyond my fear and thus walk in balance with the passing of each glorious sun.”

–A Lakota Prayer

“Let your “Yes mean “Yes,” and your “No mean “No.”  Anything more is from the evil one.”

–Matthew 5:37 

PREPARING GIFTS

 A THOUGHT AND MEDITATION

The season of giving is gearing up, to gather goodies, flowers and  wrappings to giveaway with loving thoughts and thanksgiving.

How will I surprise my family, friends, and you?  With gifts of grateful affection.

“Only for today, I will make a plan for myself; I may not follow it to the letter, but I will make it.  And I will be on guard against two evils:  hastiness and indecision.”

–The Decalogue, Pope John XXIII

THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC

A THOUGHT AND MEDITATION

“Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word – equality.  But notice the difference:  While democracy (in America) seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.”

–Alexis de Tocqueville

These words spoken in 1835 are profound today.  I believe, we are  entering the greatest battle since the Civil War. The struggle mounts to restore righteousness and freedom against the many deceitful faces of Satan’s goal to destroy America and the rest of the world.  Prayer can turn this great trial around. Please join me in prayer for the recalibration of freedom and good will because no one will be happy under socialism and communism.

A THOUGHT AND MEDITATION

O God, your are my first priority.  Everything else comes from you.

Ten lepers met Jesus on the road to Jerusalem.  They shouted from afar, “Jesus, Master!  Have pity on us!”

Jesus replied, Go show yourselves to the priest.”  As they left only one of them returned to thank Jesus in worship.

“Where are the other nine?”

To the one, Jesus said, “Stand up and go; your faith has saved you.”

–Luke 17:11-19

KEEPING VIGIL

A THOUGHT AND MEDITATION

I feel a lack in me this moment.

I need wisdom to fully understand the impasse our nation is facing against evidence of willful fraud in our election process.

“Beyond health and comeliness, I loved her, and I chose to have her rather than the light, because the splendor of her never yields to sleep.”

–Wisdom 7:10

God, grant us wisdom of heart, not just in America, but all over the world. Grant us peace at the heart of all quarrels.

I desire wisdom of heart, don’t you?
