Winter Dreaming

“When you know how much God is in love with you, then you can only dream your life radiating that love.”

Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Beams of brightness hurl darkness to the side

Seeing two rivers side by side

The Jordan winding calmly

The other gushing forth to the heavens and rising steadily

Seeing the river of life

Forever, it flows ripples of life.

Advent begins anew.

The Lord of heaven and earth” is all there is” for us.

–Anne Husted Burleigh

Renewing myself, I am ready for eternity to meet history at Bethlehem.  What are plans, desires and hopes?  Are you ready?

“One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.”


Grace of Birthday

Grace of Birthday enters gently in crowds of wandering souls,

She sprinkles on them dewy drops of hopeful things to come,

forging paths for humble understanding and giving them roses of pure love.

O Grace of Birthday, never stop pouring down your loveliness upon this universe.


Painter on His Way to Work by Vincent van Gogh

According to Vincent:

“I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process.”

I believe…Whatever is your work is worthily branded in your soul, so be joyful as you work…yours truly

Vincent, thank you for your continual inspiration.

A RE-BLOG POST of Holy Week

It gives me pleasure to share this re-blog post to savor Holy Week, Daryl, thank you.


Upon the horizon
Let all sinners seek
The offer of treasure
Of our Holy Week

So rich are the blessings
Found in the Word
The miracles shared
Of truth that occurred

An infinite well
Through mystery deep
An eternal drawing
Of quenching to seep

Through prayer of a supper
And passions display
Comes our greatest joy
On Easters Sunday!
