ECHOES FROM THE GARDEN

“It is human to fall, it is divine to forgive.”

–Mother Angelica

The Creator’s Song

Echoes from the garden of Eden

Alas, with first parents falling

Yet God’s Covenant remains

Sends His Son for our redemption

Christ’s Light shows The Way

We all desire to return to the garden

It’s not the end of our story

Love never ends

Painting by Suad Al-Attar

GOD SENDS…

“How natural it is that I should feel as I do about you, for you have a very special place in my heart.”

–Philippians 1:17

God sends us special people…

So special to brighten life

To lighten strife

When the way seems dreary,

When we are weary

To bring light

And through these special people

We receive tender care

From God’s loving steeple.

MOCKINGBIRD SINGS OF MORNING GLORY

Hail to your mimicking sounds

To awake me in sunshine or pouring rain

I cherish you like my heartbeat

O Mockingbird singing morning glory

At my first breath, movement and thought, how I thank God!

Sweet song propels me through the day wherever it leads me

At nightfall to rest, grateful for whatever the day

Then sweet dreams rush in until

Mockingbird sings morning glory again

JESUS IN DISGUISE

Each of them is Jesus in disguise.”

–Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Guess Who Sees?

Who sees their dignity?

Helping the destitute and dying

Reminding us of our calling

To dispense generous loving

Like holy Teresa

God sees you in seeing their dignity

Jesus in disguise
