Friends, in light of an upcoming five-day silent retreat I shall be enjoying at St. Placid Priory, this will be my last holy scrap for a wee while. Munch on it or discard at will. Enjoy a morning coffee, an afternoon nap, an evening cuddle with your significant other, and any other little joys to be mined from the beautiful mundane!
Peace and love in abundance…R
Wishing you all a day of awakening to tiny things of great significance (men say this kinda stuff all the time).
A new “hump day.” New challenges. New opportunities to overcome and slide down the other side of a week with joy and gratitude!
In the spirit of the Celts…
Live heartily, dear friends, and do not fear.
There are no borders in the heart of God.
There is only horizon.
It is the only place where we both see and inhabit our horizon at the same time. Present meets past meets future, all in one glorious ocean of joy-filled grace.
So, swim, dear friends. Swim.
Holy tidbit for Saturday. Live faithfully, and be brave, dear ones.
Friday, the day after Thursday, generally falling before Saturday, and a mere two days before Sunday. Having now solidified my grasp of the obvious…
Fragmentia Sacra. Holy fragments. Sanctified readings. Portions of goodness, set aside to be special. Sexy snippets. I think you get the idea.
Sometimes I can get too laborious and stifling when writing about the large hadron collider of complexity that is my life. In the midst of constructing further installments of my journey-to-sobriety story, among other stuff, I give you these…yummy tidbits (okay, now I’m just trying too hard).
Be blessed and live well, dear friends.
