See All Goodreads Deals…. No trivia or quizzes yet. Ineffable Creator, Who, from the treasures of Your wisdom, has established three hierarchies of angels, has arrayed them in marvelous order above the fiery heavens, and has marshaled the regions of the universe with such artful skill, You are proclaimed the true font of light and wisdom, and the primal origin raised high beyond all things. Pour forth a ray of Your brightness into the darkened places of my mind; disperse from my soul the twofold darkness into which I was born: You make eloquent the tongues of infants.
Refine my speech and pour forth upon my lips the goodness of Your blessing. Grant to me keenness of mind, capacity to remember, skill in learning, subtlety to interpret, and eloquence in speech. May You Guide the beginning of my work, direct its progress, and bring it to completion. You Who are true God and true Man, Who live and reign, world without end.

A Taste of Hot Apple Cider: Words to Encourage and Inspire
Our daughter is in the HS orchestra and this event is both outreach and fundraiser for them. Elementary and younger students come early to the concert and get to try playing all the different types of string instruments, make crafts, and have their face painted.
Then the orchestra plays a 30 minutes concert complete with skits and a car chase! The theme was The Great Mouse Detectives. Believe it or not, the plot started with a couple of thieves stealing a Stradivarius! Several detectives twists on famous movie and TV characters worked on the case. It was great fun, and the young ones were thrilled.
The older students put on a great show. Sleep, laundry, dishes, Blogging, cooking, phone calls, read.

Each day Garrison Keillor publishes a poem and describes several historical figures or events related to the date. At the website there is a link so you can listen to Garrison read the poem and tell about the historical events. I find his voice very soothing and expressive. Today, Keillor tells of the influence singing Moravians had on a young Charles Wesley during a long Atlantic crossing back in the early s. Charles Wesley was on a ship traveling from the colony of Georgia back to England. Many of his fellow passengers were German Moravians, and they constantly sang hymns together.
This was a radical idea — the Anglican Church had beautiful choirs, but the congregation never joined in. He sometimes wrote a hymn every day, using popular songs for the tunes. The Wesley brothers traveled around England, preaching in the open air, and Charles continued to write on the road. By the time of his death at the age of 80, he had published more than 4, hymns, and left thousands more in manuscript form.
All my trust on thee is stayed, All my help from thee I bring; Cover my defenseless head With the shadow of thy wing. I had never heard of this woman or her quilts until today. Her life must have been an extremely difficult one, but this woman who was born a slave had the heart and eye of an artist. She most likely created many incredible objects during her lifetime, though maybe not since money was scarce, she had nine or more children, and work to care for and feed that many people would be never ending. It breaks my heart! I guess the silver lining in that story is that we have this quilt today, and it might not have survived otherwise.
This is the first section. Then I will show you each of the two quilts with some information and descriptions of the quilt blocks for both. She was married at 18 and gave birth to nine children. She lived most of her life in Clarke County, where in , she began exhibiting her quilts at local cotton fairs. She was believed to have been a house slave and first learned to read with the help of the white children she cared for.
She then organized these squares to unfold a larger story, much like a modern graphic novel. This teaching style of quilting has its roots in West African coastal communities, and her uneven edging of panels mirrored the complex rhythms of African-American folk music. Through her quilts, she recorded legends and Biblical tales of patience and divine justice. Only two pieces of her work have survived: A brief synopsis of the stories, based on what Powers told the woman who bought her quilt, and preserved in the Smithsonian institution: Eve has given birth to a son.
Satan and seven stars. Cain kills his brother, and blood pours from his neck. Cain is looking for a wife. Jacob dreams about the angel on a ladder. The Holy Spirit is present in the brown bird-like object; the scene is the baptism of Christ. Judas and his silver. The large star at the bottom refers to a star that was seen in for the first time in years according to Powers.
Judas is dressed differently from the others who are all in white. Not all the disciples are shown. The quilt is divided into fifteen pictorial rectangles. Worked with pieces of beige, pink, mauve, orange, dark red, gray-green and shades of blue cotton. Job praying for his enemies. The dark day of May 19, The seven stars were seen at 12 noon in the day. The cattle all went to bed, chickens to roost and the trumpet was blown. The sun went off to a small spot and then to darkness. The serpent lifted up by Moses and women bringing their children to look upon it to be healed.
Adam and Eve in the garden. Eve tempted by the serpent. The sun and the moon. John baptizing Christ and the spirit of God descending and resting upon his shoulder like a dove. John cast over board of the ship and swallowed by a whale. God created two of every kind, male and female. The falling of the stars on Nov. The people were frightened and thought that the end had come. The varmints rushed out of their beds. The angels of wrath and the seven vials. The blood of fornications.
Seven-headed beast and 10 horns which arose of the water. Cold Thursday, 10 of February, A woman frozen while at prayer. A woman frozen at a gateway. A man with a sack of meal frozen. Icicles formed from the breath of a mule. All blue birds killed. A man frozen at his jug of liquor. The red light night of A man tolling the bell to notify the people of the wonder. Rich people who were taught nothing of God. Bob Johnson and Kate Bell of Virginia. They told their parents to stop the clock at one and tomorrow it would strike one and so it did.
This was the signal that they had entered everlasting punishment. The independent hog which ran miles from Georgia to Virginia, her name was Betts.

The creation of animals continues. The crucifixion of Christ between the two theives. The sun went into darkness. Mary and Martha weeping at his feet. The blood and water run from his right side. Thanks for the inspiration, Theresa! I think these words are very good for me to hear now. I have several friends who have just sent children off to college. I have just sent my son out the door to finish his senior year in the town we moved away from after nearly 18 years — now we are nearly 3 hours away from him.
Whether you are off on your own or the person left behind, hopefully these words will be a blessing to you! May you recognize in your life the presence, power and light of your soul. May you realize that you are never alone, that your soul in its brightness and belonging connects you intimately with the rhythm of the universe. May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique, that you have a special destiny here, that behind the facade of your life there is something beautiful, good, and eternal happening.
May you learn to see yourself with the same delight, pride, and expectation with which God sees you in every moment. It is so frustrating to be tired, so tired and not be able to let go of being awake. I often get up because after a while lying there tossing and turning and thrashing around makes no sense.
Sometimes I do a crossword. Sometimes I eat a small snack or a big one. Sometimes I read a book. I try not to use the computer or TV, but sometimes I do that, too. Recently during one of these sleepless nights, I grabbed a book of poetry by Emily Dickinson. As I read, I found many poems that were new to me. Or maybe I found poems that were new to my heart.

Of infinite life and of infinite grace? I love the alliteration of solitude of space and solitude of sea. And what does she mean about polar privacy? Is it cold and barren? Or is it diametric opposition between a soul and itself? We are left with finite infinity. Talk about diametric opposition!
