the Spirit is at work

March 14, 2010

Spiritual reorientation

often leads to upheaval in the psyche and in personal life.

Relationships may not be able to remain the same….

We may be led into situations

that painfully stimulate new capacities

or demand digging deep to cultivate new virtues

like patience or courage….

Through it all, the spirit is at work.

– Robert C. Morris

We all love poorly

February 12, 2010


is the name of love

practiced among people

who love poorly.

The hard truth

is that all people love poorly.

We need to forgive and be forgiven every day,

every hour unceasingly.

That is the great work of love

among the fellowship of the weak

that is the human family.

– Henri J. M. Nouwen

How to Recognize Grace

by Marilyn Chandler McEntyre

It takes you by surprise

It comes in odd packages

It sometimes looks like loss

Or mistakes

It acts like rain

Or like a seed

It’s both reliable and unpredictable

It’s not what you were aiming at

Or what you thought you deserved

It supplies what you need

Not necessarily what you want

It grows you up

And lets you be a child

It reminds you you’re not in control

And that not being in control
is a form of freedom

Rest on the flight to Egypt - Claude Lorrain, 1644

Come to me,
all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:28

Beauty does not linger, it only visits.
Yet beauty’s visitation affects us and invites us into its rhythm,
it calls us to feel, think, and act beautifully in the world:
to create and live a life that awakens the Beautiful.

– John O’Donohue

Gold bugs, yellow butterflies, orange lilies.

What to do with this great fragrant glow?

Well, hold on to it.

You’ll want it in the days to come.

I can do nothing

January 11, 2010

God can do everything

and I can do nothing.

But if I offer this nothing

in prayer to God,

everything becomes possible

in me.

How we spend our days is,

of course,

how we spend our lives.
