Hildegard of the Rhine once said:
“DARE TO DECLARE WHO YOU ARE.
IT IS NOT FAR FROM THE SHORES OF SILENCE
TO THE BOUNDARIES OF SPEECH.
THE PATH IS NOT LONG, BUT THE WAY IS DEEP.
YOU MUST NOT ONLY WALK THERE,
YOU MUST BE PREPARED TO LEAP.”
How goodly is God to give us such an ancient friend to echo what our prophets today are warning us about the “Great Awakening.”

To be interested in the changing season is…a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with Spring.”
Working the garden
Can you smell the dirt?

“For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.”
Arise wilted flower
The sting of death
Is just a spark to heaven

“God, you are my wealth.”
Saying one “Our Father” prayer is sufficient with just the desire to encounter God.
“My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.”
…looking for Spring out in my backyard…
“In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
When I was working fulltime, I would create to-do lists constantly. Now I cherish the luxury of time in being more spontaneous. I came across an article that suggests creating a “Be of Good Cheer” list. So, why not? Time is plenty. As I’m working on this list, I realize that writing down my ‘good cheer’ entries are uplifting and peaceful, drawing a wonderful occasion to thank God for these many blessings.
If you will do this, I bet, your list will bring about extraordinary good cheer!

“I will be Love.”
With a grateful heart, I shout out words of praise
For all that the Lord has done for me in the past
My praises shall bring my tomorrows
With God’s presence as my remedy
And so, believing in that still voice and listen
I shout out loving words of praise
Just for You
