I laughed so hard last night with the Lord that I knew it was His Joy welling up in me.
I rolled on the floor of my attic nook and enjoyed the unstoppable flow of the Spirit.
I know that He has done great things; that he has answered my prayers. If not, why the joy?
I walked on the boardwalk with my friend and we viewed what was on offer in the gallery.
There was a special, temporary exhibit at the pond: flakes of gold so light they were floating.
The lake shimmered and I cried because it was beautiful.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
All that I have, all that I am: this I give to You. Lord, have your way with me.
Espiritu de Dios: Llena mi vida, Llena mi alma, Llena mi ser.
I had been fasting and praying for North Korea when my nephew brought me a mini taco.
“Did you microwave this yourself?”
A very pleased smile; a nod; twisting hands.
So much for fasting.
A drive with an Arabic soundtrack brings me back to the past and helps forge a new future:
I am ready to be on the road once more though better friends I’ll not be knowing.
Music might provide continuity on a journey with halting stops, starts, and break-downs.
I could tell my mother I would hear certain songs and she would be sure to listen too.
We would have that connection, just the way we do when we read the same things.
I know it is important for the people we leave behind to have a sense of association.
The night will fall and each will return to his home: me to mine; you to yours. Alone.
Our paths cross; intersect; and diverge. Someday I hope to see you again, again for the first time.
In my Father’s house are many mansions. If it were not true He would not have told me so.
– Sister Still
