May is Mary's month, and I

Muse at that and wonder why:

Her feasts follow reason,

Dated due to season—

Candlemas, Lady Day;

But the Lady Month, May,

Why fasten that upon her,

With a feasting in her honour?

Is it only its being brighter

Than the most are must delight her?

Is it opportunest

And flowers finds soonest?

Ask of her, the mighty mother:

Her reply puts this other

Question: What is Spring?—

Growth in every thing—

Flesh and fleece, fur and feather,

Grass and greenworld all together;

Star-eyed strawberry-breasted

Throstle above her nested

Cluster of bugle blue eggs thin

Forms and warms the life within;

And bird and blossom swell

In sod or sheath or shell.

All things rising, all things sizing

Mary sees, sympathising

With that world of good,

Nature's motherhood.

Their magnifying of each its kind

With delight calls to mind

How she did in her stored

Magnify the Lord.

Well but there was more than this:

Spring's universal bliss

Much, had much to say

To offering Mary May.

When drop-of-blood-and-foam-dapple

Bloom lights the orchard-apple

And thicket and thorp are merry

With silver-surfed cherry

And azuring-over greybell makes

Wood banks and brakes wash wet like lakes

And magic cuckoocall

Caps, clears, and clinches all—

This ecstasy all through mothering earth

Tells Mary her mirth till Christ's birth

To remember and exultation

In God who was her salvation.

Thanks again Yvonne. I had used the laughing baby clip one Christmas as part of a semron. I wanted the children to tell me which gifts had the most value but didn’t cost any money, and who gave these gifts. I posed the question and let them think a bit, then played the video. The idea of laughter being one of God’s gifts to us got the ball rolling. I hope the child in the video is able to hang on to his God given ability to laugh.I was a bit stumped looking through my photographs to find something suitable for the theme -then I remembered the laughing baby. x x

Messages to Maria Divine Mercy, Ireland: My dearly blevoed daughter, during the changes, which will very soon erupt in the world, no one must ever forget that it was God who created the world and that it will be by His Hand and through His Power alone that it will come to an end, in the way that you know it.No government, no leader or man can control the existence of humanity or the death, which only God can decide, when souls can leave the body.No matter how much your belongings on this earth are important to you, they are worth nothing. Yet many people spend most of their lives pursuing a dream of fame, wealth and the gathering of material things, which can be taken away from them at any moment.This is why those souls, for whom I feel a deep compassion, suffer loss of wealth. I permit them to be stripped of all so that I can purify them.Many people in the world have lost much by the hands of corruption and greedy organizations. Yet, while they need to eat and have a home to live in, I permit this suffering. For it is only then that such souls will turn to Me for help. This is a form of purification so that then a man can come before Me in humility, a quality which is essential to possess, in order to enter My Kingdom.Do not be afraid when you find yourself in this position. It will only be for a while and is a result of your own making. In time all will be well. This will be a time to reflect on your future and the place, which I hold for you in My New Paradise.You must earn the right to come with Me. Your time on earth is temporary. Many souls who see the world as a place of material wonders must understand that they are but a glimpse of the exuberant and glorious gifts, which await all those of you who will live in the New Glorious Era.Your time here is infiltrated with suffering, discontent, hatred and despair due to the presence of Satan.You cannot see him but he and his fallen angels are everywhere prodding, pushing and tempting humanity all day.Many people cannot accept the fact of his existence and this is very worrying. Yet, many will not deny the hatred they can feel when they are a victim of another person's rage. Hatred can only come from one source. It is not something, which exists on its own. It pours from the mouth of the beast.For souls who leave themselves open, because they will not accept that sin exists; they will be easy targets of the evil one. They will be drawn into the temptations he places before them, usually through sins of the flesh. These souls are easy prey and will not suffer like the souls who resist him. Souls who love Me, their Jesus, and who follow My Teachings with a humble heart are the ones which the evil one concentrates on the most.These are the souls, which Satan finds extremely difficult to win over. These are the same souls who, through their prayers and suffering for Me, make him cringe and howl in agony.To those of you who love Me, it is only through your perseverance and endurance that you can overcome the grip which he has, which weakens by the hour because of this Mission.If and when you are attacked verbally, for no known reason, or when you are slandered in My Name, then know that your prayers are saving souls.Please remain silent during these attacks, for when you engage with your attackers you give much power to the evil one.Keep strong, My blevoed disciples, for My sake. I will hold you up and soon your suffering will come to an end.Your Beloved Jesus

Lovely, but I'm a bit unnerved by your phsrae proper mensural notation'. Lute tablature is proper' music. The tablature systems of the sixteenth century developed to register the complex polyphonic music of the solo lute with its subtle rhythms at a time when mensuration' couldn't cope. So those early printed lutebooks are the earliest engraved music books. x x

Sig,Great article thkans for reposting it. Scot's balance and thoughtfulness is something I appreciate deeply. I think he's spot on, though I wouldn't pose it as an either/or dilemma (politics/church). I think we need thoughtful Christians in the public sector and in the church, equally passionate about proclaiming and demonstrating the hope of the gospel. We need people like my wife, who is working as a 1st grade teacher in one of the toughest public schools in Denver. We need people like you working in churches and advocating for compassion and justice. We need the whole church ministering the whole gospel to the whole world in every school, church, shelter, legislative hall, mayor's office and hospital.Chris

This kind of Favor brings fnesulls, boldness, assurance, and Faith beyond measure. In the sifting and polishing, molding and making, everything else dims as He becomes More. This kind of Favor is intent on bringing death, and is very successful in that indeavor so the Resurrected Life is now clearly visible for all to see. Your Life is a Lighthouse and many are we that are steered toward True Life by your Holy Beauty.
