Heartful Messages, Inspiring Peace Quotes & Christmas Glimpses

Mary Oliver

Praying by Mary Oliver

It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don’t try
to make them elaborate, this isn’t
a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.

From: Thirst: Poems

Romantic Country Christmas Finds

Watch & Listen to CHURCH, from Coldplay’s new double album

While this isn’t a Christmas hymn – it’s such a meditative, heartful, positive piece that points skyward. What a gorgeous setting at sunrise in Jordan, and when the singer comes in singing in Arabic at the end…oh the beauty of the refrain:

‘Cause when I’m hurt
Then I’ll go to your church
‘Cause when I’m hurt
Then I’ll go to your church

    Oh, this video brought back memories. My first glimpse of Egypt was from my hotel balcony at sunrise with the mystical Call to Prayer. That is when these old cities are at their most beautiful, just before the cacophony of noise begins – the constant beeping of horns in a crowded city, the language foreign to our ears & the dense crowds of people. That was the start of life and new experiences in a different world for the next few years.

    “What’s the difference between those that See & Seek Gaps and those that See & Seek Bridges? The first Stops & Stays on the Side. The second crosses & Sees new Worlds.”

    Have a wonderful weekend, Michele!
