The Fortress

large-fort

It was snowing that night the wall was completed, not many noticed, tired of the fight.

Yet some conservatives rejoiced in their victory, believing the Enemy was defeated and that they could rest in their holiness once again.

However, the angels in Texas, bowed their heads with tears in their eyes,

began praying for all those stuck inside the Fortress, for those believing that somehow,

in some way, they were righteous, and so having turned their backs

on the poor.

The Truly Great Heart

my-oceans

“There never was any heart truly great and generous, that was not also tender and compassionate.”

Robert Frost

How will you share your great and generous heart today?  Someone needs your encouraging words.

The Calling

100_1299

If there is a calling for us humans, it is simply

to take care of one another

not a doctrine, nor a candle

just a place –

in the heart.

      

A refreshing compassion

is a bubbling brook

in a dry land.

Wild Roses

20160602_161538

In a way we are like wild roses, never perfect, frayed

around the edges, appearing out of nowhere yet always filled

with a beauty that belongs uniquely to us – making our world

incredibly beautiful, and often encouraging people

we don’t even know.

       

Did you ever wonder why we were all made so different, and yet the same?

Loving Mercy

20160514_123712

There’s never been a better time to care about people

to love mercy, to help the poor, to walk

in peace, being a reflection

of the One

who made us.

            

Now is the time.

Give a Blessing This Week!

20160514_124222

Now you might wonder, did I read that right? You want me to give a blessing??? Yes, there are many ways we can be a positive force. Of course, there may be friends that are going through a tough time, and we can speak encouraging words! Donating funds can be another way of giving.

But we can also create positive, and life giving beauty. With our poetry, our paintings, and our photography, we can actually lift each other’s spirits.

So be blessed, have fun, and share the light! Have a great week!
