Radiant Sweetness

Radiant Sweetness

O God how I long for Your
radiant sweetness and abundant goodness
to overflow in my heart.
But I stand in the way
of such a Divine visitation.
My unruly behavior
withdraws the welcome mat
Your extravagant grace seeks.
A stone heart
is hard to enter.

Having felt Grace’s embrace
I long to feel it again.
Help me, Lord,
prepare my heart
to receive Her once more.
Peace and purity
are the welcome mat She seeks.

To be pure of heart
requires an undivided heart,
a heart fixed on You
and You alone.
A pure heart
beats with love
for the Other
and every other.
A pure heart
is unsullied
by pride, envy or lust.
A pure heart
only gives
and never takes.
A pure heart
is a humble heart.
A pure heart
is a peaceful heart,
a heart unruffled
by the ups and downs of life.

Peace and purity
are soul mates
living together
in the heavenly chamber
Your never-ending grace
creates within us
as we surrender
more and more of ourselves
to Your all-embracing Love.

    I was reading, Scripture thought for to-day. Hebrew 13:1-8.

    let mutual love continue. donot neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.

    I was thinking of the people. from Eastern Europe. living in Ireland. who have become unemployed. living in hostels, on the streets. visiting dinner houses. along with Irish people

    let us remember the people of Egypt
