Welcome Back

Blessings, all!

Honeysuckle, Rose, (hopefully Ivy) and myself are going to try our best to post regularly on this blog once again.

There have been two major changes in my life, at least, in the past year that have affected my spiritual life. First, due to a string of God-incidences, I ended up living in a convent/boarding house for ten months. Although I was still working and studying during this time, it was a sort of lengthy retreat “into the desert” since I had a chapel right beneath my room and I had many opportunities for prayer and quiet time. At the same time, I explored different career paths and had several doors closed in my face. This was very disheartening, but God was leading me towards something far better than I had imagined. I started a new job as a seasonal Park Ranger in May and have never been so happy in my life.

However, life changes always bring new challenges. My biggest challenge these days is making sure that I build time into my day for prayer and quiet time. And, to be honest, some weeks are better than others for me in this respect.

My sister and I look forward to putting time into this blog once again in the near future. Please be assured your prayer intentions have not been forgotten!

Alive Again Follow-Up

As a short follow-up to my post on Matt Maher’s latest single…his cd is now available for pre-order!!! You can buy it off of the same website as where you can listen to his single. To make it easier for you look HERE. I think I’ll have to order 10 copies so I can just hand them out to people! Matt’s music is too good for the entire world to be deprived of it. ;).

P.s. I changed the “Quote of the Day” again. —————————>>>>>

Alive Again

Check out Matt Maher’s latest SINGLE! His new album comes out 9.22.09. Here are the lyrics:

I woke up in darkness
Surrounded by silence
Oh where oh where have I gone

I woke to reality
Losing its grip on me
Oh where where have I gone

Cause I can see the light
Before I see the sunrise

You called and You shouted
Broke through my deafness
Now I’m breathing in and breathing out
I’m alive again
You shattered my darkness
Washed away my blindness
Now I’m breathing in and breathing out
I’m alive again

Late have I loved You
You waited for me, I searched for You
What me took me so long

I was looking outside
as if Love would ever want to hide
I’m finding I was wrong

Cause I feel the wind
Before it hits my skin

(Bridge)

Cause I want You
Yes I want You
I need You
And I’ll do
Whatever I have to
Just to get through
Cause I love You
Yeah I love You

~Honeysuckle ❤

P.s. I added a new quote in the “Quote of the Day” box on the side. 🙂

A Welsh hymn

This hymn has always been a comfort to me; in fact, there is a copy of it hanging on my wall over my bed as a reminder. A reminder of what? you may ask. A reminder that even when it feels like the shadows are suffocating, God is near. A reminder that Love made us so we are and always will be His. A reminder of the Pope’s message of hope and how “those with hope live differently”. A reminder of death, mortality, and at the same time the mission of the Christian life. I hope it offers a little comfort to our readers.

Day is done, but love unfailing

Dwells ever here;

Shadows fall, but hope, prevailing,

Calms every fear.

Loving Father, none forsaking,

Take our hearts, of Love’s own making,

Watch our sleeping, guard our waking,

Be always near.

Dark descends, but Light unending

Shines through our night;

You are with us, ever lending

New strength to sight;

One in love, your truth confessing,

One in hope of heaven’s blessings,

May we see, in love’s possessing,

Love’s endless light!

Eyes will close, but you, unsleeping,

Watch by our side;

Death may come: in Love’s safe keeping

Still we abide.

God of love, all evil quelling,

Sin forgiving, fear dispelling,

Stay with us, our hearts indwelling,

This eventide.

I received my copy of the new CD a few weeks back; it is incredible! Matt doesn’t disappoint. My favorite is “Look Like a Fool” (Track 2). The CD will make a perfect addition to your music collection.
