733. Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme experience if only one had a colored pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling. ~G.K. Chesterton

The air is old and patient
and filled with secrets…
~Trini Lind


O most noble Greenness, rooted in the sun,
shining forth in streaming splendor upon the wheel of Earth.
No earthly sense or being can comprehend you.
You are encircled by the very arms of Divine mysteries.
You are radiant like the red of dawn!
You glow like the incandescence of the sun!

O moving force of Wisdom, encircling the wheel of the cosmos,
Encompassing all that is, all that has life,
in one vast circle.
You have three wings: The first unfurls aloft
in the highest heights.
The second dips its way dripping sweat on the Earth.
Over, under, and through all things whirls the third.
Praise to you, O Wisdom worthy of praise!

Holy spirit, making life alive,
moving in all things, root of all created being,
cleansing the cosmos of every impurity, effacing guilt,
anointing wounds.
You are lustrous and praiseworthy life,
You waken and re-awaken everything that is.
~St.  Hildegard Von Bingen

But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. ~John 14:26   ✝

  1. Dear God Natalie…”Now even though there are days when I ponder whether anyone really wants to see my photos and/or read what I have to say, I keep posting entries because I want to bless Jesus in every way I can..” I never honed on the fact you are taking all those incredible photos…I always read your words and ‘assumed’ you borrowed the images….today…I somehow cleared the fog in my head and read your about page. Beautiful all the way around Natalie!!! Thank you.

    • I took all of my own photos up until this last year, but because of health issues, primarily a knee that was keeping me from being able to get around and take many photos, some that you’ve seen were not my own. However, I always indicate at the end of my posts each day where I got the images if they are not, in fact mine. Thank you so much for the kind comment though. Now that my knee has been replaced, I have been taking more and more of my own photos again and will continue to do so, I pray. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤


  2. What a superb blend of humor (long colored pencil drawing on the ceiling), enchanting words from Trini, mystical wisdom from Hildegard Von Bingen, and the fascinating perspective in your photo! I love it!
