“The Lord Will Be Passing By”

“After the wind there was an earthquake-but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake there was a fire – but the Lord was not in the fire.  After the fire, there was a tiny whispering sound. ” 1 Kings 19: 11-12

 silken beauty
the stillness of morning
a water lily
the soft color captures me
i want to touch the silence

Do Not Worry

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?”  Matthew 6:25

blooming flowers everywhere 
the color of a soft breeze
 my heart gathers strength for the journey
comforted by the scent of  purple

A Dialogue

“Do not let your heart be troubled…in my father’s house there are many dwelling places.”  John 14

Hosta Greeting the Sun

Hosta Greeting the Sun

She: Rest……….. listen.
Me:  Birdsong, I hear birdsong, and new leaves rustling.
She: All of my creation spreads out before you.
Me: My heart might explode with the joy of it!
She: I will make your heart bigger.
Me: Will the joy fit into a heart filled with sadness?
She: Rest… I will carry the sadness for you.

Me:
Thank you,
Light Leading Me,
Source of  All My Joy,
Companion of My Soul,
Carrier of All My Sorrow,
My Every Heartbeat,
My Breath,
My Eyes,
Ears,
All.

I want to wear              an Easter heart
and bloom like the     willows in the woods
let me put on the Easter cloak of love
let my old heart pass away,
empty it to make room
for the heart of Jesus
to dwell in me
forever
amen
