Monday’s door

Door of the day… (Pinterest)

It is Monday. As you move into the new week may you find beauty in the detail. Routine has many portals – not all are doorways. Be curious to find something new in each portal.

Saturday Morning

“Each of us leaves evidence on the earth…” – an important time to remember this. This moment in history is rich with possibilities! (thank you, David Kanigan)

Live & Learn

rabbit-nest-empty-meuseWhen an animal, a rabbit, say, beds down in a protecting fencerow, the weight and warmth of his curled body leaves a mirroring mark upon the ground. The grasses often appear to have been woven into a birdlike nest, and perhaps were indeed caught and pulled around by the delicate claws as he turned in a circle before subsiding into rest. This soft bowl in the grasses, this body-formed evidence of hare, has a name, an obsolete but beautiful word: meuse. (Enticingly close to Muse, daughter of Memory, and source of inspiration.) Each of us leaves evidence on the earth that in various ways bears our form.

Sunbeams and Shadows

A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.
Francis of Assisi

as shadows grow in length – give thanks for each beam of light. They are the promise of hope.

St. Francis

On this Feast Day of St. Francis give thanks for the light of compassion that breaks through our darkest places. (Image – Celebration at Wild Goose Festival 2016)

Morning peace…

The peace of morning’s stillness
the peace of new beginnings
the peace of heaven’s kiss
to welcome this new day
to root us in this day
to free us for this day
that we may grow with the greening earth
that we may grow from the ground of glory
that we may grow in grateful wonder of You

Gracious Giver of this day
Great Giver of this new day.

The Shepherd’s Way

Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder.
Help someone’s soul heal.
Walk out of your like a shepherd.
