yellow pussy willow

She turned to the sunlight

And shook her yellow head,

And whispered to her neighbour:

“Winter is dead.”

Now all that I know is hazy and blurred,

but then I will see everything clearly…

Beauty is all that is glory and God is Beauty embodied, glory manifested.

This is what I crave: I hunger for Beauty…..

God revealing the weight of Himself, all His glory, through the looking glass of nature …

I pay tribute to God by paying attention.

through which God speaks to us every hour,

if we will only tune in.

Through the heart of tender mercy and loving-kindness of our God,

a Light from on high will dawn upon us and visit us,

To shine upon and give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,

to direct and guide our feet in a straight line into the way of peace.

~ Luke 1:78-79 Amplified

Let him attempt to force the process, and he may spoil both fruit and tree.

But let him patiently wait, and the ripe pear at length falls into his lap!

Behind me and before me is God

and I have no fears.
