The Lilies of the ground!

Flowers in the windPhotograph taken at Windflower resorts, Pondicherry, India

Consider the lilies, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin;yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass which is alive in the field today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O men of little faith!:

Luke 12:27-28

Trusting the Lord!

The Fisherman

 

When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.”But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking: Luke 5:4-6

God’s ray of Love

Light on water

As God illumines all people equally with the light of the sun, so do those who desire to imitate God let shine an equal ray of love on all people. For wherever love disappears, hatred immediately appears in its place. And if God is love, then hatred is the devil. Therefore as one who has love has God within himself, so he who has hatred within himself nurtures the devil within himself.  – St. Basil the Great, Homily on Asceticism

Be Exalted! Oh God!

Soaring High

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
    Let thy glory be over all the earth!
That thy beloved may be delivered,
    give help by thy right hand, and answer me!

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

Tweets of Thanks!

Indian Silverbill

A whistle here ;a whistle there

A call here;a call there

Freely we chirp; in this wilderness so bare

Raising our tweets in thanks

To Our Lord God, of us, who takes care

Where am I?

Deodar Trees

Where am I? I wonder at times

Lost in a world where patience is scarce

Where ambition drives relationships and  hypocrisy causes no remorse

Where thirst for power is all that matters and ethics matter no more

Where  forgiveness and selflessness are looked down upon as signs of weakness

 And where humility, compassion and love are considered worthless

I hope not to lose myself here, I pray

Following the ways of this world, I hope I am never led astray

Let it Rain

Monsoon Moon

Is tonight the night when our thirst will finally be quenched?

Is tonight the night when this scorched earth will finally be refreshed?

Oh Oracles of prosperity!Let it rain, let it rain we pray

 Pour out your hearts on us without further delay

The Dark Shadow

The scarred moon

“Where are you my beloved?”  softly whispered the moon into the dark night

“Let me cast my light on your graceful limbs .Your shimmering leaves, let my eyes see”

“No… No longer”, croaked the age ol’ tree

“Death has cast on me its final glance and I’d rather be alone in my plight

No longer am I worthy of your halo

I shall but cast on you just a dark shadow”
