In the Reign of Peace both animals and man shall be undying
Woke up to a fine coat of snow covering and a sparkling sun and I say Thank You! Our pilated woodpecker is back, she is about 18" long and loves suet! Today is communion with the Angel of Earth and our sabbath so pray, eat, love!
To lift your eyes to heaven when all mens' eyes are on the ground, is not easy.
To worship at the feet of the angels when all men worship only fame and riches, is not easy. But the most difficult of all is to think the thoughts of the angels, to speak the words of the angels, and to do as angels do.
The following is a short morning prayer to the Guardian Angel (from a Russian prayer book):
Angel of God, my holy protector, given to me from heaven by God for my protection, I fervently beseech you: enlighten me and preserve me from all evil, instruct me in good deeds and direct me on the path of salvation. Amen.
