Lenten Thoughts #4 . . . . Praying with the Earth

May the angels of light
glisten for us this day.
May the sparks of God’s beauty
dance in the eyes of those we love.
May the universe 
be on fire with Presence for us this day.
May the sun’s rising 
grace us with gratitude 
Let earth’s greenest shine
and it’s waters breathe with Spirit.
Let heaven’s winds stir with the soil of our soul
and fresh awakenings rise within us.
May the mighty angels of light
glisten in all things this day
May they summon us to reverence,
may they call us to life.

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,

“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.
Rescue me from my enemies, Lord,
for I hide myself in you.
Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God;
may your good Spirit
lead me on level ground.”

– Psalm 143:8-10

Prayer is like planting a seed.

“Prayer is like planting a seed.
Don’t dig it up to see how it is doing!
Pray for it. Release it by giving thanks.
Begin acting like you already have it!”

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

~ Bible(Psalm 91:1-2)

11:11 . . . . when we hold our Remembrance Day

THE POPPY

Nature created a flower, with petals of brilliant red
Who’d have thought such a beautiful flower,
Would be used to remember the dead
For when all the guns have stopped firing, and there’s only mud and rain
God sent down his little red flowers, to cover the lads who remain
So remember every November, when we hold our Remembrance Day
Of the lads who lie neath the poppies, and the price that they had to pay

D. Rothwell

Although I haven’t walked in your shoes,

Although I haven’t walked in your shoes, you can be sure
the leather on mine is thin in places too.
And there have been times for every single one of us when we’ve
put on one foot in front of the other on a very thin thread of hope.
That’s why we need good people and positive messages around us –
to encourage us through those more difficult times.
And the truth is we take turns giving and receiving –
that’s how life works best.
May you have a blessed week..

“Let us pass this night in safety,
under Your protective care,
and rise when morning comes
to give You thanks and serve You with
joyful hearts.”

I waited patiently for the Lord;

Wherever…thou shalt be,… pray there;

37343242_652966925062820_5589844294442680320_n

 

 

“Wherever…thou shalt be, pray secretly within thyself.
If thou shalt be far from a house of prayer, give not thyself trouble
to seek for one, for thou thyself art a sanctuary designed for prayer.
If thou shalt be in bed, or in any other place, pray there; thy temple is there.”

~ St. Bernard of Clairvaux
