O my beloved God, love I you greatly,
who hath loved me,
who hath been the fire in my sword,
who hath been the blue in my mantle,
who hath been the life
when death should have plucked my bones.
O my God, it has given me strength,
when I should have been weak and failed.
O my God, it is you
who hath made me worthy,
for I am nothing without you.
And you are the one that hath showed me
silver in a bird's wings across the moon.
And it is you who hath made
the clouds like phantoms over the hills,
And it is you who let me see the evening,
and hear the musicians of the water creatures
in their nightly serenade.
It is you who allowed me
to slumber in the bough of a great tree.
O my beloved God, love I you greatly.
i needed a prayer this morn this is my favorite of Ramtha's teachings a spiritual master who goes beyond than just inspire me.....it is a cool morn those cool winds of fall finally arrived here over the past few days, just as i expected deliverying the mail for 20yrs i learned the subtlies of change in the seasons, the temperature, the wind i welcome them each in their own time, own season each season a time for Change not just outside of me but from my journey within Change like the seasons ..the birds sing outside my door they're happy at the moment for i just gave them their bird seed the last bird feeder i put up has lasted and there are no more stolen feeders the birds rejoice each day with their food no matter what i put out i recently bought cheaper food to see if they'd eat it a friend recommended i mix it with the good stuff now that i know they'll eat it, i'll mix it should bring back the doves again they like the good stuff better, or so it seems....anyways, there are days i'm a deep thinker and may inscribe that here there are days i'm soul searching for myself in the midst of Life and there are days my illness teaches me again and again of Life's purpose and joy lately it is doing so (for those who are new to my journal, i have a mental illness with medication most of it is taken care of, but i still suffer from depression often i consider it a gift it has taught me much especially to appreciate the moment of Now and the present of the day truly yesterday is gone and tomorrow isn't here...) truly my life is a spiritual one not separate from anyone or anything, but living in the ongoingness of life and all it's adventures the above prayer reflects so much of my heart and soul....there's more to come
