The doorway into thanks (revisited)

 

So grateful for the beauty and wisdom you shared. Rest in peace, Mary Oliver.

Praying

It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch
a few words together and don’t try
to make them elaborate, this isn’t
a contest but the doorway
into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.”

Language as prayer

Language exists because nothing exists between those who express themselves.
All language is therefore a language of prayer.
Held in the dark, without sleep. —


Quote: Lynn Xu, from “Say You Will Die For Me,” Debts and Lessons.( Omnidawn; 1 edition, April 1, 2013)

thank you, The Vale of Soul Making

Grace received, grace shared

Enveloped in Your Light, may I be a beacon to those in search of Light.
Sheltered in Your Peace, may I offer shelter to those in need of peace.
Embraced by Your Presence, so may I be present to others.

Enveloped, sheltered and embraced- all words that speak to care and comfort and safety.

It is right that I pray this each day, each hour so that I may share in my own abundance.

Let grace rain down.


Quote: Rabbi Rami Shapiro

Blessing

My prayer is, let me be a blessing to someone or something today.
