Guard the Nest

found a “nest” at the beach.
decided to digitally collage a lamb from a Christmas nativity scene
the lamb keeping vigil with Baby Jesus

as the center “pearl” reminded me of the Christ child
and our heart’s inner nest
and treasure
of our vital breath

reminded me to watch what takes away from life
from the present moment
to notice the distractions that
take away from life’s goals

Let Your Light Shine

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

—Matthew 5:14-16

Healing Beauty

 

“St. Augustine said: “The soul is weighed in the balance by what delights her. Delight or enjoyment sets the soul in her ordered place. Where the delight is, there is the treasure.” Perhaps this is why there is such delight in beauty. In the midst of fragmentation and distress beauty draws the soul into an experience where an elegant order prevails. This brings a lovely tranquility and satisfies the desire of the soul. When the Beautiful continues on its way, the soul has been strengthened by a delight that will further assist her in transfiguring struggle.”

-John O’Donohue, “Beauty, the Invisible Embrace”
