Two doves nested on my window ledge the other day. In the coming weeks, if all goes well, a baby dove will emerge!
The glory of God is often right in front of us.
Our loving God lives in us, moves through us and loves through us, and our loving God lives in every dove, every flower, and in all earth's creatures. Everything is sacred.
We walk on holy ground every single day!
Let us smell the perfume of the roses, gaze at the fluffy, white clouds, feel the raindrops cleanse our skin, and enjoy the warmth of sunshine caress our bodies.
St. Theresa of Avila, a sixteenth century mystic, reformer and Doctor of the Church reminds us that our call is to live life fully and be in love!
"Remember if you want to make progress on the path and ascend to the places you have longed for, the important thing is not to think much but to love much and to do whatever best awakens you to love.'
While learning can open us wonderful insights, deep knowledge and lead us to wisdom and understanding, love can guide us into the embrace of God where all are one and all belong.
God is everyone's God and love is everyone's call.
Let us celebrate the beauty of life before our eyes each day!
