Blogging is a Moving Meditation.

BLOGGING as a MOVING MEDITATION: Liminality's thin passage untangles as it weaves, fits in the ineffable nooks and crannies of my heart's prayer wall, like the cracks in pavement, mile markers on the road, windblown whimsical napkin poems written in eyeliner.

New Year- Hope's Prayer



Birthright born of Battlefield
This valiant tribe contends
Keys to Kingdom Hearts
Friendship Advent mends.

Tarry to rekindle
Sacred pause remind
Embracing marrows moment
Nobility refined.

Sojourn of Spirit
Novitiate gauntlet passed
Renegade of Royalty
Passion taunted grasp

Revelation brimming Truth
Burning to conceal
Loves ransoming of death
A Signet ring to steal.

Prodigals to Princes
Prostitutes to Queens
Paradox of Destiny
Proselytizing Dreams.


Faith’s Sonnet
Hope’s Prayer
Dance and Dirge
For Love to Dare.

Be Blessed by the Advent of LOVE..


Blessings and Shalom to Ya ALL- during this special time.
It's been a hard 07 for the Thomas household...and this year i found it more than difficult to "get into" the seasonal stuff. Finally put up the tree (little thing-fiber optic) i've always loved the Jewel tone colours with some added bling to it. I'll be off and about today picking up some good grub and happy drink, while "Practicing the Presence" as Brother Lawrence puts it, in the form of added patience!

We have some very special people that are gonna "Touch IN" so my heart feels warm with anticipation. Some of the "Tribe" are in London for Holiday and Video Chat helps so much to feel closer. (Haven't gotten that translating gift in the Spirit yet so Skype or I CHAT will have to suffice.)

So Lord,
Touch us with the Advent of Your LOVE and let our hearts be Your manger where You rest and abide. In Jesus Name, Amen!
Lovingly,
Cathryn

Just a Christmas Question



This season is filled with such performance - the pressure to buy the "perfect" gift X's the multitude of family, friends and obligatory acquaintances. It would be more honest to when we see that "perfect"- special something, somewhere else in the year to randomly pick it up and send it. Perhaps it's just the place where God sent His Beloved to advent His love. Just perhaps, the most wonderful gift we can share and behold in each other is the Advent of Friendship.
Just my thoughts today.
To those that are my beloved- Thank you for the Gift of your friendship it's extraordinary.
