All Guilty

Last night as I lay in bed, my friend and photographer, Julie texted me a series of the strawberry moon last night. Whenever she texts me at night, I know that God is inspiring me in some way. I was reading Ephesians 4:30 when she texted the first photo. It was the last one that she texted to me that I knew God was talking to me.

Her photo, Strawberry Moon, helped me to write the blog post, “We are all guilty” on my blog, The Blogging Owl.  The moon always inspires commentary.

in love

Every morning I spend time in prayer and meditation. This morning I wrote in part the following in my prayer journal and posted it on one of my Facebook pages, The Prayer Journals:

The Prayer Journals 6-18-19

Then my friend, Julie, who often texts me photos at all times of the day or night, sent me a photo of this morning ‘s sunrise in which I had already penned a poem on this morning’s meditation.

Now some people will say God works in mysterious ways. I don’t happen to believe that to be true at all. I believe if we are conscious of God’s presence in all of our moments then there is no mystery. So receiving Julie’s text this morning  for me was a natural communication from God with two friends.

in love 1 john

eyes closed
into his presence
i awoke

casting out
his rays of beauty
my fears

breathing in
i close my eyes
perfect love

lonesome love

This is week is Valentine’s Week. My husband, Vinny Sal and I were married 26 years ago on the Hawaiian Island of Maui in Lahaina on Febuary 14, 1993. My friend and photographer, Julia is vacationing there this week with her family. She is sending me albums of photos she has taken and I am truly inspired!

lonesome love - maui

an old tree
nothing between them
but the sea

lifting up
whispers from the waves
her prayer

faithful heart
she waits on the shore
his return

While some would like us to look away from the chaos and corruption of the world and imagine the world is rosy instead, evil lurks. Yes, there is too much negativity in the world. Yes, we should not add to it. But let our voices not be silenced to the evil that lurks where it wants to stay hidden among the leaves ready to hurt the vulnerable.

Yes, there is beauty in the world. It reigns at the top of the stem.

I just finished reading, “Fear” by Bob Woodward today and then my friend, Karen Winters posted a photo of her cat, Jack in her yard. I couldn’t resist.
