In The Garden Of Your Heart

~Alora M. Knight

What seeds have you been planting
In the garden of your heart?
What will be forthcoming
When the germination starts?

Thoughts are the seedlings that we use,
Of this there is no doubt.
The fertile soil within our minds,
We never are without.

If gracious thoughts are planted,
The returns will surely be
A harvest full of beauty,
Which you will plainly see.

If your thoughts are dark and dreary,
You are very apt to find
That weeds will soon be growing--
The most depressing kind.

Once they have gained a foothold,
They will not want to leave.
They'll thrive on your unhappiness,
Making sure that you will grieve.

It is hard to keep bad thoughts away;
Some are bound to filter in.
The thing that's so important
Is that you must sweep them out again

Before they get a chance to grow.
That way you're sure to find
Each day will be rewarding,
For you'll have peace of mind.

The Beatitudes

Blessed are the poor in spirit:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek:
for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful:
for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart:
for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers:
for they shall be called the children of God.

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake:
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Angel of God,
my guardian dear,
to whom God's love commits me here,
ever this day,
be at my side
to light and guard,
to rule and guide.

catholic - prayer to the guardian angel

I am leaving early tomorrow for 3 weeks vacation and won't be posting regularly here until I get back. I will check in when I can.

Everyone take good care of yourself and I'll see you soon.

As you walk your path of life and love
guide yourself into spirituality
Be patient with yourself;
there is no rush when it comes to
advancing on whatever path you choose.
We have chosen to come again,
A new day dawns as WE awaken
to the marvel of heaven on earth.
WE are spiritual beings
wearing human cloaks.

Trust yourself and go within.
As the rambling begin to quiet,
listen to the whispers of your
inner self; your intuition; your spirit.
Keep what is good for you.
Love ALL unconditionally.
ONE becomes a Way of Life.

welcome


The sun shines down,
and its image reflects a thousand
different pots filled with water.

The reflections are many,
but they are each reflecting the same sun.

Similarly, when we come to know who we truly are,
we will see ourselves in all people.

Let us see one another through eyes
enlightened by understanding and compassion.

Release us from judgment so we can receive the stories
of our sisters and brothers with respect and attention.

Open our hearts to the cries of a suffering world
and the healing melodies of peace and justice for all creation.

Empower us to be instruments of justice
and equality everywhere.
prayer for everyday for all creation

Thank you for the prayers, dear Pattee. I am never to busy to pray but these days posting them is just not possible. 3 weeks of nature is in itself a prayer, I think.

Hugs

I pray
Today
That God will bring you
Peace
Where there’s been pain
Harmony
Where there’s been discord
Love
Where there’s been loneliness

I pray
Today
That God will bring you
Solace
Where there’s been sorrow
Justice
Where there’s been inequality
Clarity
Where there’s been chaos

I pray
Today
That He will heal your human heart
and help you face tomorrow
With a renewed sense of
Courage
Strength
And wisdom.

Lord, the air smells good today,
straight from the mysteries
within
the garden
of God.
The trees in their prayer,
the birds in praise,
the first blue violets,
kneeling.

When I am liberated by silence,
when I am no longer involved
in the measurement of life, but in the living of it,
I can discover a form of prayer in which
there is effectively no distraction.
My whole life becomes a prayer.
My whole silence is full of prayer.
The world of silence in which I am immersed
contributes to my prayer.
