Peace Makers


The most peaceful people I have ever met


care about others,

making our world

a better place.

The Fortress


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


“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


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.
