Hi Gail -

I don't know how that could possibly be offensive. Thank you!

"A love that should take wing; lighter than air"

"For love on the knees must be acts of love"

My favourite parts.

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

Oh, this is SO lovely, Gail! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful, spirit-filled words!


Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly!
Nothing tastes as good as living with less pain feels!

After reading the morning prayer from Missionary Oblates of Immaculate Mary that I get posted every morning on fb, I felt compelled to share what I wrote. And then I saw the title of this post, even more fitting..Yet, after the beautiful prayer and poem Leah posted, I'm not so sure. Now, in my bizarre frame of mind after I wrote this, I entitled it "Charmed, I'm Sure".

I hope that this is not offensive to anyone and taken with more than a grain of love:

Ours is a God of life and love
A love that should take wing
Lighter than air, more freedom than the dove

There are those who would make it heavy
somber, stern
Lead them to the light of the world
rather than a soul that yearns

Know life more abundantly
a love light and airy as the breeze
Rather than subject all as
Lord and Master
on your knees...

For is it God you wish them to serve
or your desires
what you think you deserve?

With love on our knees,
we wipe the brows of the sick
we clean the floors
all manner of things

For love on the knees
must be acts of love
not structured pragmatism
for human leaders
of laity sees.

Unbind the fearful of the church
to know their true heart
The kindest, gentlest love
that should be there from the start

It is not brash, harsh, and rude
not demanding
not to be subdued

We give thanks to 1 Corinthians 13
to know all that love is not
for the beauty it should be!

A better tomorrow, starts NOW!

Please say a Rosary for the US, and for the protection of religious liberty. The battle for our freedom to worship is waging strong, not just in the US, but all over the world! The greatest weapon we have is our prayers!

Prayer for the Protection of Religious Liberty

O God our Creator,
from your provident hand we have received
our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
You have called us as your people and given us
the right and the duty to worship you, the only true God,
and your Son, Jesus Christ.
Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit,
you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world,
bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel
to every corner of society.

We ask you to bless us
in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty.
Give us the strength of mind and heart
to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened;
give us courage in making our voices heard
on behalf of the rights of your Church
and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.

Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father,
a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters
gathered in your Church
in this decisive hour in the history of our nation,
so that, with every trial withstood
and every danger overcome—
for the sake of our children, our grandchildren,
and all who come after us—
this great land will always be "one nation, under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.


Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly!
Nothing tastes as good as living with less pain feels!
