From my journal during today's midday prayer:

Luke 17: 20-25
Jesus, grilled by the Pharisees on when the kingdom of God would come, answered, "The kingdom of God doesn't come by counting the days on the calendar. Nor when someone says, 'Look here!' or, 'There it is!' And why? Because God's kingdom is already among you."

He went on to say to his disciples, "The days are coming when you are going to be desperately homesick for just a glimpse of one of the days of the Son of Man, and you won't see a thing. And they'll say to you, 'Look over there!' or, 'Look here!' Don't fall for any of that nonsense. The arrival of the Son of Man is not something you go out to see. He simply comes.

"You know how the whole sky lights up from a single flash of lightning? That's how it will be on the Day of the Son of Man. But first it's necessary that he suffer many things and be turned down by the people of today.

Live it
in your heart
speak... act...
the stories of
a loving God's imagination

See the home
prepared through a song
Mystic mountain
so colorful
with rainbow shades
of skin and a cross

See the home
prepared through a dance
Divine Lead invites a partner
to do a mountain waltz:

Three steps to love
Three steps to peace
Three steps to Christ
Three steps to you

Its all there- the Kingdom
in your heart if you just
breathe deeply
