Monday Spiritual Rumination: let it be as it May…

Let it be as it May,

She who tugs at our hearts and teases us with the promise of longer, warmer days,

Bathes us in baptisms

Chrismates us with Confirmations

Feeds us in Eucharists of plenty

Unites us in weddings

Initiates us in ordinations

Sends us forth in graduations

Confers upon us honors of great varieties

Weeps with us at endings

and ignites in our hearts hope of what might be made new


May seduces our senses

As buds burst forth their aromas,

Scenting us as though we were all gods and goddesses

She is lilacs and lily-of-the valley

Jonquils and daffodils

Tulips and plum blossoms


May clothes us in petals softer than lambs wool

Paler than an early moon

challenging couturiers far and near


May anoints the allergy prone

And enlivens the gardener


She is fresh mown lawns, singing the drone of motorcycles and mowers,

Tempting us with the first frozen custard of the season

May tugs at our hearts

Weasels her way into our cold weary flesh

And re-members us

as little less than the angels.


She is the very voice of the Divine,

reminding us that life is full to the very edge and beyond.

Let it be as it May

spring tree in flower

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
