a few new beatitudes...


blessed is the broken self,
for she shall find rest.

blessed is the one who rests,
for she will find self-love.

blessed are the ones who seek God,
for they will be held & upheld.

Blessed are those who learn to fly by night, for they shall find rest in the morning's light.

Blessed are they who trust,
for in trusting they create kinship.

Blessed are those who are grateful,
for they who show gratefulness spread love.

Blessed are the voices strong,
for their singing fills our hearts with joy.

Blessed are those who live in paradox
for it will be enough.

Blessed are those who learn that a life of constant running leaves one out of (God's) breath and learning to be still allows us to catch our (God's) breath.
Blessed are those that know they are Blessed and know how to be still.

These are all so lovely ... and i'm afraid i've nothing intelligent or worthy to add, so ... i'll just savour these new beatitudes. I saw a lovely flock of daffodils on my lengthy walk this morning, and as i captured them with my camera, i thought of you. Have a wonderful weekend!

Blessed are those who share their lives, loves, and even heartaches with others.

Blessed are those who have family and don't take them for granted.

Blessed are the songs
of our shepherds and guides,
for they lead us home.

Bénis sont les fêlés,
car ils laissent passer la lumière.

I read this in Estaing, just before Conques and some days after Le Puy, where one of the long Caminos start toward Santiago.


To translate it is not so easy and not pretty. But here it goes:

Blessed are those who are cracked
for they let the light shine through.

Someone 'fêlé' in France is someone slightly crazy...

You started something very lovely. Thank you.

Many blessings.
