A Converted Convent!

The Provence home features an enclosed courtyard where a traditional basin and old fountain form an unusual swimming pool. Mature fruit trees, rows of lavender and rosemary, and other typical Provencal plants and flowers populate the interior and exterior gardens. In fact, you’ll find two magnificent Cedars of Lebanon, said to be the oldest and tallest in all of Provence!

I’m so Grateful

Thank you for the encouragement and kindnesses lavished on me since sharing my relief in finding answers for my illness. I appreciate all of the support and ideas for recovery. And I do covet your prayers. They make a difference. I spend a little time each day in our French inspired courtyard which resembles the gardens you see here NOT at ALL. Yet that doesn’t make it less of a paradise.

Sara Miles quote about prayer. ALL PRAYCER CAN DO IS HEAL BECAUSE HEALING IS EMBEDDED IN RELATIONSHIP AND PRAYER IS ONE OF THE DEEPEST FORMS OF RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND WITH OTHER PEOPLE. AND THROUGH RELATIONSHIP THERE CAN BE HEALING IN THE ABSENCE OF CURE. Sara Miles. #quote #prayer #healing #spirituality

ALL PRAYCER CAN DO IS HEAL BECAUSE HEALING IS EMBEDDED IN RELATIONSHIP AND PRAYER IS ONE OF THE DEEPEST FORMS OF RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND WITH OTHER PEOPLE. AND THROUGH RELATIONSHIP THERE CAN BE HEALING IN THE ABSENCE OF CURE. Sara Miles.

I’m so Blessed

The cardinals, woodpeckers, bees, chipmunks, squirrels, and even deer show up and remind me why we are here: TO LIVE AS REFLECTIONS OF THE BEAUTY FROM WHICH WE WERE CREATED. Whenever I turn away from that beauty or fall asleep to how perfectly I am loved, I live in scarcity and separation from the Divine. I certainly am prone to wander and leave the God I love. But when I am fully awake and hidden with it, oh the colors and flow. All of my identity markers fall away (mother, wife, Christian, American, writer, counselor) and essence rises to the surface. My heart’s song becomes “Here’s my heart, Lord, take and seal it. Seal it for thy courts above.” 

Richard Rohr quote about truth. BEFORE THE TRUTH SETS YOU FREE, IT TENDS TO MAKE YOU MISERABLE. Richard Rohr. #richardrohr #quote #prayer #spirituality #faith

BEFORE THE TRUTH SETS YOU FREE, IT TENDS TO MAKE YOU MISERABLE. Richard Rohr.

I Know I Sound Aerie Faerie

Do I sound like the hippie dippiest of fairy-like flowerchild mystics? I must admit it is who I was as a child. It’s entirely possible I am relearning the wisdom of my youth. Maybe what I write at the moments needs a disclaimer attached like girlfriend’s electrolyte levels in the membranes sure ‘nough may be wack at the moment.

James Finley quote about prayer. WAYS OF PRAYER OFTEN CALL FORTH A KIND OF KNOWING THAT PASSES BEYOND CLEAR IDEAS AND THE ORDINARY WAY OF THINKING. James Finley. #prayer #quote #jamesfinley #faith #spirituality

WAYS OF PRAYER OFTEN CALL FORTH A KIND OF KNOWING THAT PASSES BEYOND CLEAR IDEAS AND THE ORDINARY WAY OF THINKING. James Finley.

I shared a video in this post of a haunting chant by Anuna which has at times been medicine for me over the past month.

Listening to Lauren Daigle is another one of my prescriptions. This song in particular found me and is having its way with me in my weakness:
