The Tree

Little tree

Beautiful flowers

Trying to get sunlight

Too many other trees

Bigger trees

~

Trying to get bigger, taller

Just so it can touch more sunlight

Just so it can touch the sky

~

But they thought it was becoming too wild

It’s not elegant for the tree to grow outside of its lanes

They cut of parts of its branches so it will grow within the space meant for it

~

Covered in the shadow of the trees planted in front of it

The tree struggled even more to meet the light

Trying to feel the light, just so it can grow

Just so it can stay alive

~

Many years later, the tree did not grow very much bigger

But the flowers continued to bloom beautifully every year

On the small trunk carrying them all

~

They continued to cut the branches so the little flowers will look beautiful

If only the tree could grow even bigger, how pretty will the tree of flowers look!

~

The storm came and withered the flowers away

But the trunk remained, despite its fragility

~

Until the fire after the storm, burned down the remains of the trunk

~

Now we have to start all over again, the roots thought

~

Despite the lack of sun, despite the storm and the fire, despite the desire of the tree to grow higher and feel its leaves flying in the sky

The tree grew into the ground

Stronger and firmer than any storm could defeat

Nurtured and entangled with all essence of life

~

What is essential is invisible to the eye

It is that very essence that kept the tree alive

~

And when there is life…

Essence

My Love,

We are made from the same

~

Like the particles from stars descending from Heaven

~

I am made from You

You are made from Me

Meditations II

The glorious vista surrounding me

I felt Your embrace

~

How You’ve always given me the best You could give

How You’ve taken away what I needed to become

~

The One You intended when You created me

~

You shielded me from danger when You put me in the storm

Just to train my character, without allowing me to perish

~

Your love, all-encompassing

Like an embrace, thus comforting

~

That made me forget, if there was ever another version

Before You

~

In the presence of Your silence

You trust me to continue to walk towards You

~

Crossing the distractions along the way

As You reached Your hand to me

~

And I gave mine to You

Becoming Me

To bring love and hope into the world with my words. So when you read it you know how immensely loved you are by Our Heavenly Father.

All the love and warmth you feel do not come from me, they come from God. The Light that shines through me.

May all that I do, all that I am, be acceptable as a living sacrifice, all to the glory of God.

It doesn’t matter where I am or where my steps take me, because God chose me knowing the way I am. He created me, after all, out of love. Just like how He created you, out of love.

He never gave us any test we cannot handle. Every experience He planned for us only meant to help us grow, to arrive closer to our completion, so we can find our way back to Him.

Adoramus Coeli

You told me to trust You

You’ll take care of me, like You’ve always done

Everyone You put on my way is to bring me closer to You

And if I want to help You, so You don’t have to care for it all alone, then I should only occupy myself with what makes me happy

Knowing that everything I touch becomes more beautiful, because it makes me happy

And that makes You happy

And that makes me happy

Tests

I will give you Peoples to take care of

I need to know, if you’re willing to accept

~

Will you love them like I love you?

Will you save them from the Evil One?
