A RE-BLOG POST – The Blessing of Light

What a powerful silent expression of Winter…maybe nearing its end, and worthy of a re-blog here, Daryl, Thanks!

DarylMadden

From a night of darkness
Of blustery chill
Sky of snow falling
We awake to morn’, still

We blink once or twice
Rechecking our eyes
A miracle blessed
Of wonders surprise

A pasture of snow
Icicles formed
With a coating of ice
Each tree is adorned

Sun of arising
The scene to ignite
The world set ablaze
With the blessing of light

Every branch glows
Each blade of grass shines
Diamonds of brilliance
Proclaim joy divine

A RE-BLOG POST Meaning of Silence………….

Such a profound story to share here as a re-blog…o how this reminder is needed today, Thank you for this, Kamal.

Buddha and Philosopher - Power of Silence, Spiritual Enlightenment

One day some people came to meet a solitary monk who was sitting quietly near his small hut. They asked him very politely: “Sir, what is the meaning of silence and meditation? We would like to hear it from you.” He got up without saying a word to the people and went to a deep well which was besides his hut and started scooping water from a deep well.

He then said to his visitors: “Look into the well. What do you see?” The people looked into the deep well and responded: “We see nothing!” The monk put down his bucket. After a short while, he urged the people once more: “Look into the well! What do you see now?” The people looked down again: “Now we see ourselves, they said.”

“Earlier you could not see anything,” replied the monk, “because the water was restless as your life. But now…

A RE-BLOG POST The Book of Nature

Your ‘Book of Nature” encapsulates the goodness of God in the simple things of nature. I see how easily you are inspired by Henri’s writings, and I’m happy to reblog this here for others to enjoy as well.  Thank you, Daryl, for faithfully encouraging my writing…I so appreciate you!

God’s a hidden Presence
This truth we are aware
If we let nature speak
We see, He’s everywhere

Through beauty of this world
When we pause and still
These wonders indicate
Gods’ Presence and His will

Though the book of nature
Can’t be reduced to words
Gods’ characteristics
And activity is heard

How do the sun and stars?
The rhythm of our days
Speak of God’s great glory
Wonder and His ways

As we become attune
To listen and to seek
Through nature of surrounding
Are means which God can speak

(based upon words by Henri Nouwen)

A RE-BLOG POST Butter and Abundance of Blessings……………

I really like the way you compare the good taste of butter on bread to God’s abundance of goodness for us all, so happy to re-blog this here, much thanks, Kamal.

Bread and butter Stock Photo by alexstand | PhotoDune

A warm slice of bread soaks in the butter that is abundantly spread on it. The butter will melt so beautifully and tastes so yummy and delicious. It does not matter how much butter we put, but if the bread is cold, the butter will stay on the surface only.  It will not melt even if you want to. Bite into it and you will see how different the two taste.

It is the same bread and same butter but a world of a difference in the taste. The melted butter tasted just right but the cold butter had no taste at all. And so, it is dear friends with the Blessings in our life too. It does not matter how abundantly our Lord blesses us, showers us with His unconditional love but if we are not gracious in our acceptance of what he has to give us…
