PEER THROUGH THE DAY

Painting by Peter Adam

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

THE WORLD WILL ALWAYS RAGE

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.

Amen.

IN A LOVING GAZE

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
