Gethsemani Journal–August 1, 2015

I recently spent a weekend at the Abbey of Gethsemani for a silence and solitude retreat. The Lord spoke in many beautiful and gentle ways, often through sunrise and sunset. The beauty of God seemed so all-pervasive and constant! I was reminded that all my journeys take place under the rule of this kind and powerful Father.

I wrote the following short reflection after being blessed by a magnificent sunset the night before.

Gethsemani Aug 2015

The Love of God and Joy of God floods the created universe, each moment a pulsating firestorm of goodness.

It permeates everything, crashing gently into this moment.

It surrounds and floods my family tree whispering:

“Courage, dear heart;

everything can be redeemed.

Everything sad is coming untrue.”

Beautifully expressed! This so blessed me Scott-"Courage, dear heart, everything can be redeemed. Everything sad is coming untrue."

This feels like the heart of our Maker. I'm touched my Him in this. Thank you!
