Bits of Spring in Northeast Tennessee








This April has been so lush and beautiful.  All kinds of weather.  The last several days have been quite chilly and so very windy.  The winds have finally laid today---and the sun has been shining.  More rain forecasted for tonight and tomorrow.  April has been such a lovely month.  April showers will bring May flowers.  My soul shrivels up for those (places/people) who are in drought.  Sending prayers for nourishing rains to all creatures.

Happy Easter Greetings and Blessings

EASTER BLESSING

The blessing of the morning light to you,
may it find you even in your invisible
appearances, may you be seen to have risen
from some other place we intuit and know
in the darkness and that that carries all we need.
May you see what is hidden in you
as a place of hospitality and shadowed shelter,
may that hidden darkness be your gift to give,
may you hold the shadow to the light
and the silence of that place to the word of the light,
may you join all of your previous disappearances
with this new appearance, this new morning,
this being seen again, new and newly alive.
