MY WEEKLY THANK YOU NOTE TO GOD. THANK YOU RUTH AYERS FOR MAKING THIS SPACE AVAILABLE.

Today is Easter Sunday morning when a large portion of the Christian world celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.  I started meditating on what the word resurrection meant to me at this beautiful time of the year and came upon this definition:

RESURRECTION
The act of reviving or condition of being revived:
reactivation, rebirth, renaissance, renascence, renewal, resurgence, resuscitation, revitalization, revival, revivification.

A PRAYER FOR RESURRECTION OF LOVE AND RESPECT

Dear Creator,

At this holy season

after another terrible week of hurting each other

resurrect in our hearts the love for each other

that lies dormant waiting for

RESURRECTION.

Wishing you the peace of Easter Season,

Bernadette

Happy Easter To You

Just In Time

 

Easter Morning
Easter Morning

 

I have been meditating for about 15 years.  I try various forms of meditation because I still haven’t learned how to tame my thoughts.  Some days I just drive myself crazy with the chit chat that goes on in my noggin.  One of the craziest things that happens to me when I meditate is I hear songs complete with orchestration and lyrics.  Before I know what is happening I completely caught up with the song.

The form of meditation I am currently using involves repeating a prayer or a spiritual passage.  I chose Psalm 23.  So this Easter morning as I was repeating Psalm 23 along came Frank Sinatra singing Just In Time.  I struggled to get back to the Psalm but Frank kept singing away.  So I stopped and really thought about the lyrics and how beautifully they can apply to God’s love.  Maybe I will start repeating these words because I remembered this morning you can find God’s love everywhere.

 

Just in time
I found you just in time
Before you came my time
Was running low

I was lost
The losing dice were tossed
My bridges all were crossed
Nowhere to go

Now you’re here
And now I know just where I’m going
No more doubt or fear
I’ve found my way

Wishing you a week filled with pleasant melodies,

Bernadette
