Beloved II .....

"In this union and communion with Him, love is brought to completion and consummation,
because as He is, so are we in this world."
-1 John 4:17


Equal parts
and Divinity,

We move between the two,
marrying the two,
as He did,


and Godliness,

A bridge from
Holy Ground
to Holy God,

Jacob's Ladder,
Lifting others

With Hinds Feet footing
in our own Belovedness

We become the way
to the High Places,
to their place,

as Chosen,
as Cherished,

as the Beloved


"He has made my feet like Hinds Feet,
He makes me walk in the High Places"
-Habakkuk 3:19

Lilies and Birds





Petals and Wings
Lilies and Birds,
Flowers and Flight...

Finally Found,

to Love
and Light
and Lift


Long Awaited



"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."
-Anais Nin

"He will Quiet you in His Love"
-Zephaniah 3:17


Storm Stilled,
We then Still,
and Soothe,
and become Shore
for others...

His Voice
through our own

to fellow Travelers
on this restless sea...

We board their boats
as Jesus did,

and with that,

the waves bow down
the wind defers
and we give His incomparable Gift

of Quiet


"And when He got into the boat, the storm ceased"
-Matthew 14:32

Three months ago, I posted Hidden, illustrated with the photograph above.  The same post follows here, along with a photograph I took today, three months later, depicting the same vineyard....

Life comes back...Life always comes back...

* * *

...hard to believe they'll bloom,
much less bear fruit again,
this landscape of a thousand crucifixes
looking lifeless
and beaten...

but within each cross
flows the blood of beginnings,
perennial promise
of return...
of resurrection...

beneath the stillness,
this suspended animation,
are stirrings...

The scene which holds for the eye only death
belies unseen Life within...
welling up,
and moving in ancient circadian concert 
with all of Creation,

as it readies itself,
 The Reveal.

"To everything there is a season, 
a time for every purpose under heaven"
-Ecclesiastes 3:1
