The gift required Us to work with it Not enough To leave it alone For soon it would Wither and die Yet could give Form to life A life To live. . Image by balouriarajesh on Pixabay
All must hear this clearly: Whatever comes to pass The Gift Is greater than The Trespass.
Arriving in Light
The gift Of the morning Arrives In light An early Dawning From depths Of night And I gaze Through the window To the Gathering day And wonder And worship And ponder And pray. Inspired by https://darylmadden.wordpress.com/2018/07/11/light-and-air/
Before a little Living thing . Growing Before our eyes . We knelt In worship . And presented What gifts we had . Our Everything. . 'Adoration of the Shepherds', Reni
The Mystery, The Gift
~ The revelation That God is One and Three ~ The mystery The gift ~ The blessing Of The Trinity. ~
~ Your death Was my initiation Into nothingness ~ The darkness That is more internal Than night ~ That dying Of the psychological self Was a preparation ~ To receive The gift Of divine illumination. ~
I discovered gratefulness.org yesterday and their five guiding principles can be expressed as a poem: ~ Life Is a gift ~ Everything is A surprise ~ The ordinary Is extraordinary ~ Appreciation Is generative ~ Love Is transformative ~ from gratefulness.org ~ Image by argrosda from Pixabay
. Unique That gift . Of birth That time . That place Not shared . By grace Yet what . Horizons open As a lifetime . Stretches futurely Invitingly . Mysteriously Eternally. . Image by Uliana Pinto from Pixabay
Born in Blessing

~ Welcome time As a gift ~ From God And seek ~ To put it To good use. ~ Poussin, 'A Dance to the Music of Time'
