Flower in the Crannied Wall   Leave a comment

Flower in the crannied wall 

FLOWER in the crannied wall,
I pluck you out of the crannies;-
Hold you here, root and all, in my hand,
Little flower-but if I could understand
What you are, root and all, and all in all,
I should know what God and man is.

By Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892)

Cast Off Your Winter Coat   Leave a comment

As Spring begins to cast off her Winter coat, let us run to our Light and Salvation, casting off weariness and bitterness.  Let us embrace joy and forgiveness:

I Came to You Late

I came to You late, O Beauty so ancient and new. I came to love You late. You were within me and I was outside where I rushed about wildly searching for You like some monster loose in Your beautiful world. You were with me but I was not with You. You called me, You shouted to me, You wrapped me in Your Splendour, You broke past my deafness, You bathed me in Your Light, You sent my blindness reeling. You gave out such a delightful fragrance and I drew it in and came breathing hard after You. I tasted, and it made me hunger and thirst; You touched me, and I burned to know Your Peace.

St. Augustine of Hippo Prayer

Taste and see that He is good.
