The Heart Inflamed and the Soul Enchanted!

Good morning!

 Kalhil Gibran writes  “ And beauty is not a need but an ecstasy. It is not a mouth thirsting nor an empty hand reaching out but rather a heart inflamed and a soul enchanted. It is not an image you would see nor a song you would hear, but rather an image you see though you close your eyes and a song you hear though you shut your ears. Beauty is life when life unveils her holy face. But you are life and you are veil. Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror but you are an eternity and you are the mirror.”

 We have just entered one of our high and holy seasons. A time of storytelling , seeking and seeing. It is a time of beauty , “the heart inflamed and the soul enchanted . The story that we share and the journey we take this time of year is filled with wonder, joy, love, peace and hope. It is mystery! It is Life as life unveils her holy face!  We ask the question “ IS there room in our beings for the birth of the Christ Child?”.  If the child is indeed within us and reflected through us to the world then beauty will be seen in all of its wonder and glory and the light of Christ will shine.

 My prayer this day is that your heart will indeed be inflamed and you soul enchanted.

 Blessings,

Valerie
