Strength for the Journey

You have come into a sacred space where you can nourish your spirit, find healing, feel peace, and discover the Transcendent in your everyday experiences.

Take a deep breath right now. Slow everything down for a moment. Allow yourself to have a Sabbath moment of quiet resting in God. Let God speak to you through the verses appearing with each photo on the left. Pray to God, saying, “God, what is something you want me to see or feel or learn as I ponder these words?”

Come back periodically to this page, and let your spirit be fed and your consciousness expand.

Ancient Celtic Blessing

Deep peace I breathe into you.
Deep peace, a soft white dove to You;
Deep peace, a quiet rain to you;

Deep peace, pure white of the moon to you;
Deep peace, pure green of the grass to you;
Deep peace, pure brown of the earth to you;

Deep peace, pure blue of the sky to you;
Deep peace of the running wave to you,
Deep peace of the flowing air to you,

Deep peace of the quiet earth to you,
Deep peace of the sleeping stones to you!
Deep peace from the Son of Peace to you.
Deep peace.
Deep peace.
