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.

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

Whenever You Pray

“Whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret.”  Matthew 6:6

 Morning Surprise

Morning Surprise

****
The invitation is 

to meet God in silence,
deep in my own heart;
He patiently waits for me
to open the door to his word
and to sit quietly 
letting it soak into my being,
there are many doors to close on my way to this 
sacred place where God waits for me.
Today, I close the door on guilt and worry.
Jesus , I desire the grace to
 open the door to the compassion that resides in my heart ,
to the place where you abide.
