“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
Today is the Feast of Pentecost – the birthday of the church – & the day we celebrate the Holy Spirit coming into our hearts and lives.
“Come Holy Spirit, send the rays of Your light to us from Heaven.
Come giver of gifts, come, light of hearts, sweet guest of the soul, sweetest relief …
In fatigue, repose, in heart, refreshment, in tears, comfort…
Wash what is stained, bathe what is dry, heal what is bloody.
Bend what is stiff, warm what is cold, straighten what is crooked…” (from the Liturgy)
grace, peace & Holy Spirit HOPE

Thanks for these beautiful words celebrating the coming of the Holy Spirit! 🕊
Once on silent retreat I had an image of a dove flying with little tennis shoes on its feet-claws. I asked Dean about it & he said maybe it meant to be ready to go (any place, anywhere) but yesterday I realized maybe it’s also about serving God with Holy Spirit power serving others – with tennis shoes on! Hugs! 😍🕊😎🕊😍
Have a nice week ahead Virginia.
You, too, Arlene. May your days be filled with extra Holy Spirit unction, wisdom, grace, peace, love, courage & joy. Blessings & blogging hugs! 🕊💞🤗💞🕊
