♥” CROWN OF BEAUTY for ashes.”


Bring beauty...

 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord♥
for the display of his splendor.

~ISAIAH 61:2-3





Sprinkle prayers...

SPRINKLE a seasoning of short prayers on your daily living.

If you see something beautiful,
thank God for it.
If you are aware of someone’s need,
ask God to help. …
You can toss up many such prayers all day long.
They will help you in your meditation
and in your secular employment as well.
Make a habit of it.

~Francis de Sales, Introduction to the Devout Life

“As for God, his way is perfect:
The Lord’s word is flawless;
he shields all who take refuge in him.
2 Samuel 22:31
