Acompáñame a estar sola

Mi amado Jesús,
Acompáñame a estar sola...
a charlar sin las palabras
a estar juntos sin tocarnos,
a vivir unidos en desvelo.

Acompáñame al misterio
de no hacernos compañia
en el silencio
de saber que estoy aqui
y tu siempre a mi lado.

Acompáñame a lo absurdo
de abrazarnos sin contacto
tú en tu sitio y yo en el mío
como un ángel de la guarda.

Acompáñame a decir sin las palabras
lo bendito que es tenerte
y serte infiel
sólo con esta soledad.
Acompáñame a quererte sin decirlo
sin tocar ni el reflejo de tu ser a contraluz.

Acompáñame a estar sola
para calibrar mis miedos
para desintoxicarme del pasado.

Si se apagan las luces
y si se enciende el infierno
y si me siento perdida
sé que tú estarás conmigo
con un beso de rescate.

Acompáñame Jesús mío
a decir sin las palabras
lo bendito que es tenerte
y serte infiel
sólo con esta soledad.

Acompáñame a pensar en mi
para vivir por ti
y tú en mi
por esta vez
y para siempre.
Amen.

One is never too old to be surprised by Joy

My Sweet Jesus,
What a joyful moment
when you first appeared to the world in the flesh
as a newborn child!
The choirs of angels sang...
The shepherds came
even kings and wisemen from afar drew near
to the place of your birth.

The old were made new
as the young were renewed
in the joy of the heart.

How softly you enter the heart
and how quickly the joy raises a new song to the heavens:
It is Christmas! It is Christmas!

The heart that is pure
has been prepared to receive the incredible gift of you.
The heart that was asleep to the world
is awakened by the indescribable joy of your birth,
and so she sings:
It is Christmas! It is Christmas!

The joy remains;
for the heart - is the heart of a child
renewed in the hope of life eternal in your Love.
Amen.

Entering into our hearts this Christmas

Do we make time to truly enter into our hearts and find what we harbor within?

Or are we too busy worrying about the things we think we must prepare in order to awaken to Christmas day happy and filled with joy?

Is our heart ready to receive the Love it was created for?

Are we preparing our hearts (God’s place of predilection) for the coming of the Christ Child?

Or are we too busy running to-and-fro looking for last minute ‘bargains’ to wrap up in bows and rush to place under a tree?
When we enter into our hearts, do we find kindness and goodness in the Lord, for the Lord, and with the Lord? Is our heart an emptied vessel waiting to be filled with all the gifts that are found in God’s goodness and mercy?
Our consumerist society tells us that Christmas is about the gifts we buy in order to give to our loved ones, family and friends…However, in today’s difficult economic times, maybe we are being offered a harsh reminder to look for alternate gifts that have no monetary value or price tag to lure us away and cause us to feel less special if we cannot afford to buy…
As families with or without children, we can (instead and as a much better alternative) make crafted gifts that we prepare as a family; spending time together in the creating portion of the gifts. We will discover, in this way, the joy of spending time together (a most valuable gift in and of itself). Or perhaps we may find our way to visiting an older neighbor, spending time with those in hospitals or nursing homes. The gift of time is priceless, and yet so affordable…if we only make the time to give it with joy in our hearts.
As our hearts become empty of all things contrary to God’s goodness, they begin to be born in the Love that is infinite and unlike any other. The heart that is nourished by the Love of God continues to yearn for more and more…As this Love is infinite, there is no end to the source nor to the giving to the one who wishes for more. When we give this infinite love freely, especially to those who are most in need, the love grows and grows - as this is the nature of this priceless gift.
Indeed it is wonderful and lovely, that God, who is Love, comes softly to the heart of his lover… (those prepared to receive the purity of the gift of His Son). We in turn can bring this Love – in haste (as Mother Mary did) – to those we visit, carrying the precious essence of the gift that infinitely gives: the Love of God, made flesh in our hearts.

On the Wings of God's Love

On the Wings of Love
we allow our spirit

to take flight...

towards the Father in heaven
experiencing in the essence of our being
the unlimited possibilities...
But first,
we must totally surrender
to the Father's will for us...
We become empty
and by His Spirit
we are filled with the good
that makes us rise
to our eternal destiny
as One.
