"O timeless and eternal Spirit, liberate us from the prison house of selfish desire, of worldly standards and of petty ambition into the spacious heaven of Thy love. May the peace of the eternal Father brood over us; may love of the eternal Son surround us; may the strength of the eternal Spirit dwell within us." Anon.
(from A Diary of Prayer by Elizabeth Goudge)
The greens in the garden nourish my eyes!
The lily girls wear a color beyond compare.
A ragged little patchwork heart hangs on the door peg.
Nature's bountiful offerings are prettier than cut gems, aren't they?
Isn't this a lovely color? My staple food: the ruby red grapefruit.
Don't you feel peace, love, and strength coming your way when you look around you?
I like the prayer at the top very much because of the two-word combinations, one adjective with each noun:
Prayers are poems.
