As I think about my life Walking through each day, I remember what Jesus said: “I am with you always.”   When I have lost a loved one And grief upon me lays, I remember Jesus saying, “I am with you always.”   While I am feeling anxious In my work or in my play, […]

One Candle

One candle to burn in  the  desperate  darkness. One candle to cast circles of  Christ’s  love. One candle to guide travelers lost in  the night. One candle to reflect the everlasting flame of One  Life. – Elaine Wilburt

Be My eyes and be My ears, Seeing, listening to hear All those who need Me. Be My hands and be My feet, Reaching, walking thus to meet The souls who seek Me. Let your heart be so like Mine, Calling on My love, divine, That all who pass you on their way Will turn […]

Believe

Blessed are you who […]

  Before I got married, I didn’t know the reality That the easiest thing to grow Would be apart. Apart a little at a time Until it makes a hole.   Before I got married, I didn’t know the reality That the hardest thing to grow Would be a part. A part a little at […]

Celebration

  God worked and then rested — He created, then blessed A sanctuary in time. In life’s blur, a quiet clime To pause, recalibrate, Rejoice, invigorate —  Weekly re-creation,  Sabbath celebration.   Helen Heavirland
