“This is how much God loved humanity. He gave his Son, His one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in Him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. A relationship with God. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending His Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling people how bad they are. He came to help, to put people right again. Anyone who trusts in Him is acquitted (forgiven); anyone who refuses to trust Him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God (Jesus Christ) when introduced to Him.
John 3:16  altered version

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Let those who love the Lord hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
Whoever pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity, and honor.

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. 
And what does the Lord require of you? 
To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

Happy New Year 2018

I know I am a little late getting to this post. In fact, I have been behind my time for a good while now. I hope to be more consistent going forward. A lot in my life has changed and I am adjusting, slowly.

I love to write. Poetry is my first love and followed by short essay and fiction. There is a novel in me somewhere; I just have to sit down long enough to get it written.

The blog I am sure will also evolve as I do this year. This is my year! I still do not have a vision for it, but I am open and listening. God is good and faithful. In Him, I trust. He will lead me.

I am taking a writing class, working on my art journaling skills, and learning to take better care of my whole being. I have neglected taking care of my physical body and need to get healthier.

Mind you, I am not going to share my entire life's journey, I do not want to bore you with the details, but I will from time to time share tidbits of life and work and morsels of wisdom from my journey.

I hope and pray this will be a good year for you as well. Blessings, Peg.

Autumn Party

Clement, russet, lime green, burnt umber, lemon, and scarlet leaves, 
a tapestry, a throw rug upon the grassy landscape. 
The confetti at the end of one season and the beginning of another. 
Autumn party.

Saint Patrick
IrishPádraig [ˈpˠaːd̪ˠɾˠəɟ]) was a fifth-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Known as the "Apostle of Ireland", he is the primary patron saint of Ireland, along with saints Brigit of Kildare and Columba. He is also venerated in the Anglican Communion, the Old Catholic Church and in the Eastern Orthodox Church as equal-to-apostles and the Enlightener of Ireland.[2]
The dates of Patrick's life cannot be fixed with certainty but there is broad agreement that he was active as a missionary in Ireland during the second half of the 5th century. Early medieval tradition credits him with being the first bishop of Armagh and Primate of Ireland, and they regard him as the founder of Christianity in Ireland, converting a society practising a form of Celtic polytheism. He has been generally so regarded ever since, despite evidence of some earlier Christian presence in Ireland.
According to the Confessio of Patrick, when he was about 16, he was captured by Irish pirates from his home in Britain, and taken as a slave to Ireland, looking after animals, where he lived for six years before escaping and returning to his family. After becoming a cleric, he returned to northern and western Ireland. In later life, he served as a bishop, but little is known about the places where he worked. By the seventh century, he had already come to be revered as the patron saint of Ireland.
Saint Patrick's Day is observed on 17 March, the supposed date of his death. It is celebrated inside and outside Ireland as a religious and cultural holiday. In the dioceses of Ireland, it is both a solemnity and a holy day of obligation; it is also a celebration of Ireland itself.

The Rays and Edges of Heaven: A poem

Sunbeams and moonbeams,

the rays and the edges of heaven.

The Morning After

Wow, I feel winter setting in...burn the coal, spray the weeds, and disturb the terra ferma below the bedrock with potent chemicals. You think the water tastes terrible now, you haven't tasted or seen anything yet. Forget about clean air...goodie more money for the pharmaceuticals for asthmatics. "Can I get in on that?" asked the senator...representative...lobbyist." "No, wait until I do the 'Health Care Deal.' I am talking BIG money!"
This reminds me of the drunk uncle at the holidays, when he has awoken from his rampaging stupor and surveys the damage...opps too late for all of the family and neighbors. This hangover is going to be a doozy!
It's going to be a bumpy ride!
Thank you for your participation!
Now hold hands and sing Kumbaya, that is an order!
