May it be delightful my house;
From my head may it be delightful;
To my feet may it be delightful;
Where I lie may it be delightful;
All above me may it be delightful;
All around me may it be delightful.
Every word of every tongue is Love telling
a story to her own ears.
Every thought in every mind, She whispers
a secret to her own Self.
Every vision in every eye, She shows her
beauty to her own Self.
Love courses through everything.
No, Love is everything.
How can you say there is not love, when
nothing but Love exists?
All that you see has appeared because of Love.
All shines from Love,
All pulses with Love,
All flows from Love --
No, once again, all is Love!
Fakhruddin Iraqi, aka 'Araqi (1213-1289)
Persian philosopher and mystic of the Islamic tradition
The Lord your God is with you; He is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you
with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3: 17
The greatest honor we can give Almighty God
is to live gladly because of the knowledge
of His love.
Julian of Norwich
And now, the Last Word:
May the longtime sun shine upon you,
all love surround you,
and the sweet light within you
guide your way on.
A woman went to the Post Office to buy stamps for her Christmas cards.
"What denomination?" asked the clerk. "Oh, good heavens! Have we
come to this?" said the woman. "Well, give me 50 Catholic
and 50 Baptist ones."
