God has place this wonderful creation in our hands. As U2 sings, "It's a beautiful day, don't let it slip away." We have this one life to live on this beautiful planet so enjoy these reflections on God, faith, life, and music. "After the flood all of the colors came out. It's a beautiful day."

Awake

My advent word of the day is awake.
                                                                         ‘But about that day or hour no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33Beware, keep alert; for you do not know when the time will come. 34It is like a man going on a journey, when he leaves home and puts his slaves in charge, each with his work, and commands the doorkeeper to be on the watch. 35Therefore, keep awake—for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or at dawn, 36or else he may find you asleep when he comes suddenly. 37And what I say to you I say to all: Keep awake.’                                             Mark 13:32-37

Stay Awake. This is one of the themes of Advent. We are to remain awake. To be ready for the coming of God.  Advent is the times of the year when we are reminded to keep on the look out for the coming of God. We don't know when or where God will be so we always need to be aware, be alert, stay awake.  We are invited to learn that we never know when and where we will encounter God. If we are  not awake we might miss God.




Nothing Can Trouble

Nothing can trouble, nothing can frighten.
Those who seek God shall never fo wanting.
God Alone fills us.
Stay awake, keep watch, there is no peace on earth.
Nothing can frighten those who make the journey and seek God.
Nothing can frighten those who make the journey and seek God.
