Words of a Sermon that No One will Hear

Words of a Sermon that No One will Hear Not often, but sometimes I think I have something worth saying. I start looking for a soapbox. When I find it, I mount proudly, with Bible tightly gripped for thumping. Thus says The Lord: "Stop fearing one another, stop hurting my precious Creation, And... grow up, wake up, smell fear's polution. As for me and my house, we choose love over fear.

I Am Done

I Am Done I am done with trying to please others. I am finished with those who fake it. I have nothing for those who love to control. Since I met you, Oh Divine Lover, nothing less than perfection will do. Shams has been ruined by Love. Sign in to see full entry.

Love Knows No Boundary

Love Knows No Boundary It has been said that God sends rain and sun on the just and unjust alike. How could it be otherwise? The Muslims say God is Mercy and Compassion. How could it be otherwise? How could the One exclude any part of Creation from Her Love? How could Satan exist without God's permission? How can we judge another, whom God made in Love? Shams says, "Better to turn the mirror inward when we are tempted to judge." Sign in to see full entry.

My Happy Birthday

My Happy Birthday How strange to be. God danced the day I was born. How do I know? Simply because She dances at each one's birth. Seventy-two years ago, this soul joined those struggling on this earth. The Beloved and I have been dancing ever since. Shams says, "Join me for a drink." Sign in to see full entry.

Hu Dost

Hu Dost "Hu Dost", he whispered as they greeted one another with a tender hug. "Hu Dost", she offered in return. Like 'Namaste', it was a greeting of divine love and respect. As such, it was layered, rich in meaning. 'Hale, Lover of God' might be a good translation. or 'Greetings, divine friend'. Recognizing the holiness of others is sweet. Sign in to see full entry.

tood Up

Stood Up I came with open heart and willing body. You drank wine and fell asleep. So much for sacred union. It is no great matter. Only a loss of this night's sleep. Shams will not hold a grudge at being thus stood up. Sign in to see full entry.

Precious Moments

Precious Moments Precious, secret moments, taken anytime, we pause to turn inward. Shams is greedy; he keeps demanding more moments. He takes them more and more, right in the damn midst of life's chaos. Outrageous! It is the only Greed God inspires. Sign in to see full entry.

Character Matters

Character Matters The evidence is clear; The contrast before us. One a President, past, who made some unpopular decisions; the other a president, now, makes decisions by fiat. One, honored for his compassion, integrity, and kindness; the other, shamed by his misogyny, greed, and narcissism. God is our Creator. Who will be remembered by the people of love, harmony, and beauty? Who will be dismissed as fear's aberration? Sign in to see full entry.

Heart Attack ... Not!

Heart Attack.... Not! I rose early to pee. By the time I returned to my bed, my heart was racing. I could barely feel my pulse. A cold sweat gripped me. A dull pain filled my chest. Decided to sit in my recliner and examine the facts. At seventy-one, could this be my first heart attack? Looked up the symptoms of a heart attack on the web. I was not panicked as I contemplated my options. I observed the absurdity of my hesitancy to call 911, not wanting to have a bill for my 20% of the ambulance... Sign in to see full entry.

Sundays

Sundays I love Sundays! It's not because I am a retired Episcopal priest. Rather, I just love the twelve folks who keep that historic church alive. One day this church will grow to its former glory. How do I know? Because I know the love that flows from these 'old-timers'! Sign in to see full entry.

Fear of God

Fear of God Most of us, if we would admit it, have some fear of God. Why? Do we fear being swallowed up in God's Glory? Are we resentful of being just a creature? Are we small-self-focused so much that we cannot abide the thought that all is One? Shams says, "Fear not, for we have been given tidings of great joy!" "Only that created by God, exists."

My family of choice numbers in the hundreds. They are my spiritual brothers and sisters. I think Christ spoke about this Sign in to see full entry.
