Thursday, May 15, 2008 patient and trust...

The photos here are taken at a gorgeous farm house I went to on Sunday called Sentry Hill in Glengormley – open to the public – quite a small place … but gorgeous garden …and lovely coffee!

I also want to thank my circle of friends so much for being the support I needed recently…you’re the best!

Words of Henri Nouwen that have really spoken to me this past month….

‘Be patient and trust. You have to move gradually deeper into your heart. There is a place far down that is like a turbulent river, and that place frightens you. But do not fear. One day it be quiet and peaceful….

…..receive more and more of the love that comes to you. Wherever there is real love for you, take it and be strengthened by it…..

….You are not yet there, but you are moving fast. There will be a bit more pain and struggle. You have to dare to live through it. Keep walking straight. Acknowledge your anguish, but do not let it pull you out of yourself. Hold on to your chosen direction, your discipline, your prayer, your work, your guides, and trust that one day love will have conquered enough of you that even the most fearful part will allow love to cast out all fear.’
