Still Life by Paul Gauguin
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves – like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue.”
Do not seek the answers which cannot be given you – because you would not be able to live them.”
“And the point is, to live everything.”
–Rainer Maria Rilke
On this second Sunday in Spring Lent, what becomes your ‘still life’ reflection?
Mine is to seek peace and to live in good health.
With a cold storm sweeping across our nation this week, be safe and warm.
“The promises of God are always “Yes, Amen!”
–Prophet Robin Bullock
There is a desire to hear God built into our spirit, to savor the Word and seek His face.
The breath of Jesus on the cross baptizes anyone for service and power. All that is needed is simple:
Rest plenty and forego busyness
Etch the Word into your heart
Forgive others as God forgives
Become more servant, and
Speak to God daily
Growing with God will be like the breath of Jesus on the cross.
The Lord says, “I am early, and I am never late.”
May this first week in Lent offer you the glories of heaven to come.
A Humble Song
Be watchful, the time is late
Clouds of righteousness gather
Justice stands at the gate
May wrong give way to right
As Mercy comes in might
In new and golden light
A diadem is set right
Painting by Paulo Zerbato
Dare to think as God does?
“Suffering requires a very active faith. We must see suffering in a graced light. This deeper surrender is what God waits for always; it is why he allows pain.”
–Father Donald Haggerty, Archdiocese of New York
Perhaps, one way to carry one’s cross and follow Christ.

During this Lent, “I will be so guarded from every enemy by a constant return to prayer in moments of quiet” in my covenant garden.
This week I pray to have the fortitude to follow Christ’s Will in all that I do.
May this week bless you with good things you so deserve.

I will trust in the Lord. I will forgive others. I will not lean on my own understanding.
Lord, I believe, I hope and I love you. Please pardon those who do not yet know and believe in you.
