The Creator & His Creation!

Wings“You have heaven adorned, earth beautified, the sea populated with its own creatures, the air filled with birds which brighten it in every direction. Studious listener, think of all these creations which God has drawn out of nothing; recognize everywhere the wisdom of God; never cease to wonder, and, through every creature, to glorify the Creator.”-St. Basil the Great

The Pleasures of this Life!

Suffering and Hope!

Tribulation

 

More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us : Romans 5:3-5

Speak My Lord

 

Speak, my Lord, speak, my Lord,
Speak, and I’ll be quick to answer Thee;
Speak, my Lord, speak, my Lord,
Speak, and I will answer, “Lord, send me.”

– from George Bennard’s song: Speak My Lord

The Beauty of Love!

The Path to Glory

Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; It is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way;

It is not irritable or resentful; It does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.Love never fails.

For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect; But when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away.

So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love —

1 Corinthians 13:4-8
