The Flowers and the Creatures Belong To Me

.

I am in God

And God is in me

.

And the flowers

And the creatures

.

And the trees

Belong to God

.

And also

To me

.

And heaven

And eternity.

.

Inspired by St. Mariam of Jesus Crucified, The Lily of Palestine, O.C.D. (1847-1848), accessed via https://mycarmel.blog/carmel-quotes/

“I am in God, and God is in me. I feel that all creatures, the trees, the flowers belong to God and also to me. I no longer have a will, it belongs to God. And all that is God´s is mine.”

That Moment

Focusing again on what seems at first to be a cloud over the head of Christ in Piero della Francesca’s painting, but is actually the shape of a dove with wings outspread, the symbol of the spirit...

.

That moment

Of blessing

.

When there is

Spirit touching

.

Your spirit

And the heavens

.

Are thrown open

To reveal such light.

Another Realm of Beauty

Another Realm of Beauty

Continuing the posts about this beautiful painting – look again at the angels on the left-nad side (it’s easy not notice they have wings at first!)…

.

The angels

Amazed

.

Hold hands

In glee

.

Their rainbowed wings

Speak

.

Of another realm

Of beauty

.

And we too

May be cleansed

.

By this grace that

Reflects

.

The colours

Of heaven’s mystery.

Reflecting the Light of Heaven

Reflecting the Light of Heaven

Icons often have a gold background. Piero Dells Francesca’s painting seems to be bathed in a brightness that reflects off the bodies of the angels on the left, Jesus and the man removing his shirt behind Jesus…

.

His body reflects

The light of heaven

.

Warmly

As gold

.

Rains down

In a shower of grace.
