Sheep were grazing in the field, and looked up to see what I might offer.
Included with the journal is a bookmark with the following poem:
If I were an angel,
I’d softly speak to
your heart’s ear,
and hold you with
my warm and
Though this life is
rare and precious,
do not live in fear~
count instead the
every season brings.
A kingdom much like
heaven is spread across
the earth, and with
awakes the human race.
And Love does flow
right to you, within, among,
and through you,
lighting all you do and are
with its eternal Grace.
The illustration on the journal is a painting called Tatiana’s Awakening, by Charles Sims,1896. There are approx. 60 golden parchment pages inside, and she is nestled in a gift box.
I wish I could bring you with me on walks around the island. I snap photographs and jot notes in my notebook, receiving words and poems.
Here is this morning’s poem……..
There are undreamed dreams inside you.
Might you name a few?
There are some hopes that were dashed and are jagged –
could you breathe them into repair?
And what of praise and unspoken gratitudes-
begin to speak them in every moment.
Speak them and feel your life turning
from worry into song.
It is such a blessing to live in a beautiful place- I am ever thankful, and happy to share these snapshots with you.
“To find one’s center- to become centered in the infinite,
is the first great essential of every satisfactory life.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
