I am mindful that there are special souls
that forever touch our lives
and how important it is
to daily thank the God Lord
for those dear and special souls

"We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can fly only by embracing each other."-lucian de crescenzo
Blessings to each of you

Summer Touch..

Summer touch
beneath my wings
take flight in depth
let spirit sing

the dance of life
the smiles the tears
love create
run wild through the sands
of life's journey
fly angels on wings
across the sea
will vast never cease
to bring end to the flight
let hearts sing now
in pure delight...

Are there days...

Are there days you touch the tender reality, beauty and questions of humanity? ...
Are there days you ponder life's gentle course in gratitude and tears?
Are there days you feel so happy you could dance upon the mountain tops..
yet so tender that tears could flow to the river?

Are there days?....

Today this quote touches me in ways that perhaps transcend words...

So I share the words that move me:

"Love is not love until love's vulnerable."

(Theodore Roethke)

Are there days you touch the vulnerability of Love for others
amidst the grandest of loves of our dear Lord?
Are there days?

Thoughts for the Day... on "Wholeness"

I have been readingBold an interesting book titled Seeking Peace by Johann Christoph Arnold. Within the book he shares a wonderful quote from Henri Nouwen...

As Nouwen talks of the complexity of life and multiple roles, activities, values, beliefs, etc. he writes

How can we "keep in together" when we are constantly being torn apart? Jesus says, "Not a hair of your head will be lost. Your perseverence will win you your lives (Luke 21:18019). We can only survive our world when we trust that God knows us more intimately than we know ourselves. We can only keep it together when we believe that God holds us together. We... win our lives when we remain faithful to the truth that every little part of us, yes every hair, is completely safe in the divine embrace of our Lord. "

Do you ever have those tender areas of your life that you care so much about yet they too seed such vulnerability when gentle concerns or questions seep in to the thoughts and feelings? No matter how much faith, hope and love we live life with, we are all so deeply human. ...

Sometimes it is so incredibly difficult, yet so uniquely important,

to "Let go and Let God."....
