God is a river...
God is a river, not just a stone
God is a wild, raging rapids
And a slow, meandering flow
God is a deep and narrow passage
And a peaceful, sandy shoal
God is the river,swimmer
So let go. Peter Mayer
(quoted in Water, wind, earth and fire by Christine Valters Paintner)
Today is also the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It used to be August 22 and we celebrated it with great solemnity and now it gets overshadowed with the Feast of the Sacred Heart coming the day before and I suspect Mary is happy with this arrangement. I owe so much to Mary and love having today to spend in gratitude for her presence in my life.
