Sunday Morning

I asked my Mother if she believed in God.

“People are my church,” she said.”

  3. Beautiful words! Reminds me of this –
    Tear down the mosque, the temple, everything in sight. But don’t break a human heart. For that is where God resides.
    – Bulleh Shah (1680-1757), Sufi poet from what is now Pakistan.

    Well, as a being of the People kind, that is WAY too much pressure! Mere people (like me and.. uh.. Trump..) may let you down, let you fall, let you disappear like Feral Cat #9, all without laying down a thing for your benefit, let alone life itself!

    As I set here in the sunny gift of a garden, where daffodils, crocus bloom the grass green and cut and a large over wintering rosemary bloom drawing in honey bees, small birds perch in the aspen tree which is in the state of catkins (like pussy willows) soon to follow leaves my family planting fertile seed to put in the flourishing small green houses (some plants have all ready been transferred to the hoop houses!) The fertile seeds will bring forth beautiful flowers and bountiful food…and I Do believe in God and one of his many miracles is a garden…and I think of how a day short of a month ago the snow came, we ended up with 2ft…some spots in town you can still see tiny remnants of snow, the last snow in our yard melted last Saturday! /// The photo you posted is so Beautifully Majestic – I love nature and church images…thanks I hope that God brings a Blessing of a Breath of Peace to your family this week.:) Kindly, Christie
