Carpe Diem #1029 Felt With The Heart

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” Hellen Keller

My father taught us all about the constellations as a child.  We lay out all night and watched the meteor showers twice a year.   I continued this tradition with my own children.  Still love is a bigger adventure.

star gazing
your hand slips into mine
the whole world changes

……………………………………………………………………..

For the past 15 years we have raised and release swallowtail butterflies.  Every time it is a thrill to watch their maiden voyage.  Watching my daughter and her concern for each caterpillar is also wonderful.  Now I an passing the tradition on to my grandchildren.

Psalm 7:7–9

7 Let the assembled peoples gather around you,
while you sit enthroned over them on high.
8 Let the Lord judge the peoples.
Vindicate me, Lord, according to my righteousness,
according to my integrity, O Most High.
9 Bring to an end the violence of the wicked
and make the righteous secure — 
you, the righteous God
who probes minds and hearts.

~~~

Convene us Lord before you
 Rule over us and judge us
 Help us rise above violence
 and fill our hearts with righteousness

before the spring equinox;
the cold will last
only a night or two more                       (Rotsu)
