The constant and quiet rain of today invites me to write about what rises in my heart in a special letter to God.
I cannot deny the desires to grow more intimately with You, my Lord, and to be transformed by the renewal of my mind in your presence. In so doing, I attest to your holy Word:
“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of grace of God.” –Ephesians2:8
I thank you, Lord for this gift is Christ himself indwelling in me, the source of me being saved…and the key to mankind’s salvation.
My Friend, have you ever written a love letter to God? I highly recommend it as a lofty cleansing exercise that liberates the body, mind and soul. Your heart will expand with so much love, deepen your faith and your letter will be treasured in heaven. If you do this, let me know how it goes!

There are special moments in life, like this,
when I am soaking in sacred presence
unafraid, stepping into the blizzard of life,
my eyes seeing what I hadn’t captured before,
a breathless universal companion creating my being – whole.
The past is so far gone; my future so infinitely clear.
Such a special winter moment.
“In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.”
May Love reverberate anew in your life this week.

Lovingly To God
O Dawn’s first ray of light gently opens my eyes. The birds around my house chirp sweetly to get up, waste no time. My heart swells with hopeful offerings to my ancestors. I quickly make coffee…aah! I’m fully awake as I step into the majesty around. Squirrels tizzy about tree tops and birds land on wormy grass. It’s time to cherish another day, to love and pray. Yes, Lord, your scribe is ready for whatever…
“If you carry the messages in your heart and live them, everyone will notice.”
–Words from Mary at Medjugorje
LOVE LETTER TO GOD
UNCHANGEABLE FATHER – Here we are again setting the world on fire.
ALMIGHTY SAVIOR – our families, societies, rulers and nations are all under assault.
MERCIFUL ONE – We all suffer to one degree or another with disdain.
HOLY SPIRIT – we need courage and healing.
KING OF GLORY – Help us to crush the axis of evil and re-establish orderly peace.
O de L’Orangerie Art by Alphonse Mucha
LOVE LETTER TO GOD
In a loving gaze – alone with you – in silence, pushing out random distractions out of mind. Sitting ever so still, wishing to surrender all. God, do you see me? Why do I often fail you and others? Now I feel your presence, your love is smelting, my eyes swelling with droplets…now I feel your glance, now help me see what you see in me.
“My wish for you is that you continue. Continue to be who and how you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness.” –Maya Angelou
