This Calling of Love
~ Honouring another merely human being - is this idolatry? ~ Yet the giving of worth, affirmation ~ Is this calling of Love. ~ Inspired by this painting from The Life of St. Francs of Assisi by Giotto - 'St. Francis Honoured by a Simple Man'
Infinitely Loving Face
Since the beginning Of time God’s presence Is everywhere Even where you are today Divine grace Smiles With an invisible Infinitely loving Heavenly face. “...the indwelling of the Divine Presence in everyone and everything since the beginning of time” (from 'The Universal Christ', Richard Rohr, p.1) ~

Pain awakens The deeper questions What is my purpose? What is my end? Death who waits smugly Asks for what reason Your life was sent. Look back at the darkness Smile and say God loved me into being For once and always.
