Simple Life

A walk into the country side, where fields and flowers grow,
Air, so ever wholesome, feel the earth between our toes.
Rolling back to distant times, when life moved oh so slow,
Where simple virtues were extolled, and hearts, a quiet glow.

Song and Travel

20140805-121426-44066527.jpg
Glimpse of golden sunlight, the journey beckons come,
Leave the old and tried, pay heed, a different drum.
With rhythm, soulful music, a catchy tune to hum,
A song to cheer life’s travels, succumb now to its charm.

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

Miracle of the Sun

Miracle of the Sun

The Sun.

Bright.
Massive.
Reliable.
Predictable.
Nuclear power.

What if we had seen the sun dancing in the sky, dangled about by Our Lady “like a trinket at her wrist”^?

Miracles do happen.

13 October 1917,

To the Heavens

Citizen of Heaven

The sky may be the limit but surely, that is short of inspiring when one is a citizen of heaven.

“But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body …”

~ Philippians 3:20-21
