Hideaway

Hideaway

Gentle breeze, soft music plays,
Warm sunlight, His gift of day.
Be still then, this quiet place,
Your soul’s much needed hideaway.
~ D.F.

*************
Jesus said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.”
~ Mark 6:31

Charred

Charred

Charred
========

A char along the edges,
Be not too distraught,
The Lord gently chastising,
His goal, your soul restored.

So in this blight, take pride,
Wound inflicted and healed,
It is only those deemed worthy,
That in mercy, He so deals.
~ D.F.

Heavenly

Heaven and the Bee

Perhaps this little bee can give us a glimpse of heaven?

***

Bursting with life,
not barely,

Ever so busy,
yet not fretting,

One at home,
Hearts resting.

“You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.”

~ St Augustine of Hippo
(13 Nov 354 – 20 Aug 430)

+ May the souls of our dearly departed find eternal rest. Amen. +

Nuts and Bolts

Nuts and Bolts

Ever adept, man has learnt to manipulate the physical world, even the nuts and bolts that hold the double helix of his own DNA together.

But what are the nuts and bolts needed to restore his soul, and indeed to make it one in harmony with his body?

What are these essentials in the spiritual toolbox?

• Prayer and Almsgiving •

*************

“Pray without ceasing.”
~ 1 Thessalonians 5:17

“… give alms, and behold, everything will be clean for you.”
~ Luke 11:41

“But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right is doing, so that your almsgiving may be secret.
And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.”
~ Matthew 6:3-4
