Dear Readers,

I love the concept of the Radiant One eagerly
anticipating our first conscious thought of Him
each morning. Thus begins each day's glorious
Inspiration Dance between the Above and us.

Open your hands and your heart to receive this day
as a precious gift from Me. I begin each day with a
sunrise, announcing My radiant Presence. By the time
you rise from your bed, I have already prepared the
way before you. I eagerly await your first conscious
thought. I rejoice when you glance my way.




Excerpted from "Jesus Calling,"
by Sarah Young
Thomas Nelson, 2004

____________


I cannot dance, O Lord,
Unless you lead me.
If you wish me to leap joyfully,
Let me see You dance and sing -


Then I will leap into Love -
And from Love into Knowledge,
And from Knowledge into the Harvest,
That sweetest Fruit beyond human sense.

There I will stay with You, whirling.


Mechthild of Magdeburg (1210-1285)
German mystic

The Last Word:

The soul should always stand ajar,
ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)
