Be Thou My Vision: St. Patrick – March 17

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

Year of the Wood Dragon

A powerful visionary, the Wood Dragon, finds potential in  regeneration like the energy coming forth in nature, when a flower blooms or the expanding out of the new season.

Dragons represent soft, cooperative, power. Their energy isn’t always properly respected, causing imbalances like storms howling in spring.

  1. moderate your energy and efforts
  2. summon your inner dragon, be creative, resourceful, and adaptive
  3. imagine the deep roots of trees that allow them to live long, and remain steady through the many seasons of life.

I love you and wish you a happy 16th year full of exciting experience and kind realizations. Know that you are forever loved and hand in hand with Jesus throughout your time here on Earth. xxo, Mom

Peace Prophet Of Chicago

Known as the “Peace Prophet”, this Chicago artist creates striking portraits and botanical drawings. Little is known about the Peace Prophet, a literal “outsider artist” living homeless on the streets of Chicago. This enigmatic woman has created a remarkable body of work and is among the most widely collected artists in Chicago as her works are estimated to be in the collections of hundreds of people who have encountered her where she lives, on the streets surrounding the Chicago Cultural Center at Michigan Avenue and Randolph Street. The Peace Prophet is beginning to be recognized by the larger art world. Harvey Pranian, dealer in outsider art, describes her work as, “Reminiscent of Lee Godie but more elusive”. In addition to being owned by hundreds of private collectors and admirers, her work is included in the permanent collection of Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art in Chicago.

Dear God, Please send miracles
to the people of Ukraine.
Send angels to minister unto them.
Bring calm and peace to their frightened hearts.

Soften his heart and remind him of his soul.
Please God, may there be peace.
