Immersed in prayer, nature, and the support of others on the journey of spiritual growth, I discovered a creative and playful part of me. Dunrovin Retreat Center provided the opportunity to commune with nature, God’s greatest metaphor for seeking wisdom on the journey. Forty members of contemplative outreach provided a strong sense of God’s divine presence in the Silence, Solitude and Solidarity. So it is with humble Service, I have the courage to share my insights with you…
The sun’s warmth caresses my cheek
So Your light envelopes my heart
The clouds of darkness hide the sun’s warm rays, yet its energy remains constant
So sin and pain attempt to damper the fire burning within me, yet Your love is ever present,
Shining forth when I least expect it
Just be in Me
A Morning Walk
A white blanket covers the earth, giving leaves permission to let go.
I look up into the light, reaching, laughing, jumping, catching.
Holding the golden beauty.
Grateful for this journey.
