And So It Is...

God is love, so I love others. Passion makes life exciting so find something to live for.

Thirst

Mary Oliver

Another morning and I wake with thirst for the goodness I do not have. I walk out to the pond and all the way God has given us such beautiful lessons. Oh Lord, I was never a quick scholar but sulked and hunched over my books past the hour and the bell; grant me, in your mercy, a little more time. Love for the earth and love for you are having such a long conversation in my heart. Who knows what will finally happen or where I will be sent, yet already I have given a great many things away, expecting to be told to pack nothing, except the prayers which, with this thirst, I am slowly learning.

Women in shorts cause crash, 1937
And the world was never the same.

I’m hoping to cause the same effect when it warms up ;O)

Prone to wander, Lord I feel it; Prone to leave the God I love.
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it.
Seal it with Thy courts above.

Learning to Do Nothing

Alan Jones

One of the best-known sayings of the desert fathers is this: “In Scetis, a brother went to see Abba Moses and begged him for a word. And the old man said, ‘Go and sit in your cell, and your cell will teach you everything.’”

Sitting in one’s cell is like resting in one’s grave. It can feel like death. It is learning to do nothing, and indeed, to be nothing: to be, like Abraham, one who is as good as dead. It was then, remember, that God called him out of his deadness to make him into a great people.

The desert truly stretches, breaks unto death, and remakes the soul. It challenges us with one basic command: “Go and sit in your cell, and your cell will teach you everything.”

Explosions…on the day you wake up
Needing somebody and you’ve learned
It’s okay to be afraid
But it will never be the same
It will never be the same

Ellie Goulding

You wasted all that sweetness to run and hide
I wonder why
I remind you of the days you poured your heart into
But you never tried
I’ve fallen from grace
Took a blow to my face
I’ve loved and I’ve lost
I’ve loved and I’ve lost

Ellie Goulding, Explosions

I pray that you will find peace of mind
And I’ll find you another time
I’ll love you, another time.
