Here we are,
in our meeting place.
Our secret garden,
in a beautiful day of June
I find You in the flowers.
I find You in the birds,
the trees, the ducks, the butterflies.
All rejoice and praise You.
Your presence is here with me among the lilies.
Your fragrance is everywhere.
Your love and tenderness follows me
wherever I go.
Nature is Your playground.
The sky is Your canvas.
I stop and let all these precious moments
stay with me forever.
They console my heart.
You know my heart is aching
from the losses of three dear friends.
Three beautiful souls that recently departed
To Your loving arms.
May You welcome them in your Kingdom,
where there are no more tears and pain.
Blessed them with Your everlasting love and peace.
Your Heart I seek.
I want my heart to become a shrine for
Your Sacred Heart.
A place where You can rest and I can rest
and my God.
~ My short poem to Jesus
Nothing can separate us from the love of God.
If God gave the soul his whole creation she would not be filled thereby but only with himself.
From the creation, learn to admire the Lord! Indeed the magnitude and beauty of creation display a God who is the artificer of the universe. He has made the mode of creation to be our best teacher.
~ St. John Chrysostom
The whole earth is a living icon of the face of God.
~ St. John Damascus
God passes through the thicket of the world, and wherever His glance falls He turns all things to beauty.
~ St. John of the Cross
I asked the whole frame of the world about my God; and he answered, I am not He, but He made me.
St. Augustine of Hippo
Let us protect Christ in our lives, so that we can protect others, so that we can protect creation!
~ Pope Francis
