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:

Live generously

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.


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.
