Heavenly Mother Sings
Heavenly Mother Sings < read by Melody
hymns hidden in the heart
melodies we hum
wind in the garden–
music made of grape vines
ballad of comfort in sea-swell for
sailors thrown to knees
requiem on mountain top for
climbers grown cold–
She pulls our heartstrings
tunes them to Hers and to
Her son who sings with us–
Song of Redeeming Love.

Quote of the Month
"...I believe we have misinterpreted the words of the Savior, "Ask and ye shall receive," in a manner that transforms God into nothing more than a genie that sometimes emerges from a lamp to grant our wishes and sometimes doesn't. We focus on what prayer can do for us. On the other hand, we ignore the reconciliatory, transformative, and redemptive aspect of earnest prayers - what prayer can do to us...It's about having the kind of heart God wants me to have, which is love. God wants me to be like Him. Therefore I have to become love...In our culturally narcissistic way, we think that the universe somehow revolves around us and that God is going to give us guidance like a Garmin or a GPS. I don't think that is how it works. I think God is passionate about one thing and that is teaching us how to love and creating people that love...We have these narcissistic ideas when it is quite simple, God wants you to love" (Dan McDonald A Thoughtful Faith podcast, episode 41, 18:09).
