In honor of GK Chesterton Birthday, here is one of my favorite quotes from the English author and convert to the Catholic Church:
“People have fallen into a foolish habit of speaking of orthodoxy as something heavy, humdrum, and safe. There never was anything so perilous or so exciting as orthodoxy. It was sanity: and to be sane is more dramatic than to be mad.”
The world is full of a number of things,
I’m sure we shall all be as happy as kings.
Robert Louis Stevenson

A broken memory
far and lost
barely holding on.
For the though of what you lost
carries such a weight.
into a painful reminder
of what you left behind.
Yet you hope.
For the life in your eyes
to set fire to that that hold you
Today marks the one year anniversary since my first post: So it begins:
“He is a sane man who can have tragedy in his heart and comedy in his head.”
It has been a wonderful and exciting first year of blogging. I have been blessed of meeting so many great bloggers and be encourage by them. Thank you for following and all the encouragement.
O divine spark
that softly whispers
the beauty of creation
gently tugging at our hearts
with joyful bursts of inspiration.
May I ever be so vigilant
that my sights never miss you
lest my heart become restless
without you at my sight.
