For My Grand Child On the Way

                                                          Before I formed you in the womb I knew you...
                                                                                                    Jeremiah 1:5

                                                  You have begun your incarnation here.
                                                  You are being beautifully made 
                                                  from the splendorous dust,

                                                  the silence
                                                  of your mother's womb,
                                                  the abundant allowances of love.

                                                  You are on your way
                                                  and already 
                                                  we welcome you:

                                                  the earth and its fullness,
                                                  noisy with heaven,
                                                  our disheveled love.

                                                  We hold you now in our hearts' light-
                                                  haven from all dark
                                                  onslaughts through time.

                                                  For our days here are like the grassy fields,
                                                  a brief flowering 
                                                  the wind passes over,

                                                  and the place we are 
                                                  will know us no more
                                                  except by love, 

                                                  the long song we enter into,
                                                  the gracious song 
                                                  God is singing us through.



  1. Beautiful, utterly, absolutely beautiful. I loved every gentle line, most of all - our disheveled love - that is indeed the way we love.

    1. Thanks so much Caitlynne Grace! Good to read your generous comment while I attempt to get back into writing and blogging once again. It is so good to hear from my friends again after so long. I continue to miss Nancy Shuman and her beautiful words and shimmering spirit. May she be in joy now and forever. God bless....

    2. I actually could understand some of the poem and also loved the "our disheveled love" description. Enjoyed the read.

  5. Catholic must know Dogma > Ripped from your soul.
    If you're at all interested in knowing ... the Catholic Dogma ... that we *must believe* to
    get to Heaven, and which you have *never* seen ...

    I list it on my website > >

    And no ... the anti-Christ vatican-2 heretic cult (founded in 1965) is not the Catholic Church (founded in 33 A.D.).

    There are over 200 heresies against Catholic Dogma ... in the "vatican-2 council" documents ...50 listed on Section 12 (followed by Catholic corections) >

    Being outside ... the Catholic Church in any heresy ... leaves one with no chance of getting to Heaven.

    Physical participation in a heretic cult (vatican-2, lutheran, evangelical, etc) ... automatically excommunicates you from the Catholic Church (that is, Christianity) >

    Mandatory ... Abjuration of heresy to enter the Catholic Church >

    Dogma that one must Abjure to leave the vatican-2 heretic cult and enter the Catholic Church >

    The BIBLE says ... 15 TIMES ... it is not the authority on Faith,
    the BIBLE says the Church in it's Dogma and Doctrine ... is the authority on Faith and the definition of the Catholic Faith ...

    The Catholic God knows ... what we think and believe ...

    Catholic writing of Romans 1:21 >
    "They ... became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened."

    Catholic Faith (pre-fulfillment) writing of Deuteronomy 31:21 >
    "For I know their thoughts, and what they are about to do this day."

    Catholic Faith (pre-fulfillment) writing of Job 21:27 >
    "Surely I know your thoughts, and your unjust judgments against Me."
