the plumeria bends
I worry that they will bend too far and break
"I know you are tired, weary, in need of rest.Come, burrow here, and find comfort.Pull the covers over your head, just for a little while.Blot out the world, the responsibilities, the weight of it all.Sink into me and let go. Cry if you need to.Breathe.Remember whose you are and gather strength.When you are refreshed, rise again."
Today (March 19th) we celebrate St. Joseph. Rather than use a scripture passage for the Daily Inspiration, I chose a poem my aunt wrote a year and a half before her death. I remember her telling me that Joseph must have been a truly remarkable man. We are all blessed by Joseph's actions. Has anyone been a Joseph in your life?
Tuesday Tea & Prayers is a short prayer time once a month, offered through the St. Mary's Chapter of the Daughters of the King in San Pedro. We begin with checking in with everyone, and thinking of the things we are grateful for; Scripture and/or prayers are read; then there is time to center and offer your own prayers ~ silently, aloud, or in the chat; and we close with the Alternative Lord's Prayer from A New Zealand Prayer Book.
Here are the scripture/prayers used on March 9th ~
I want to float on the fog,
Surrounded by the opaqueness,
Upheld by the hands of God.
I want to step onto a cloud at sunrise,
And be bathed in
That glorious Light.
I want to be like the sparrow,
Lifting my wings in the sky’s soft skirt,
Enveloped by all that is Holy.
I want to dance in my dreams
And awaken to delight in this day.
Thanks be to God.
