Lent 2020 ACC – March 3rd

Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday! The Photo Word of the Day is Enter.

I love this photo! It is simply breathtaking. The sun entering the day! I took this early on a Sunday morning as I was preparing to go to church. It was a gorgeous reminder of God’s unfailing love. That morning was cold and brisk but the sun warmed my heart💛

“From the rising of the sun to its setting the name of the Lord is to be praised.”

~Psalm 113:3

“Have you commanded the morning since your days began, and caused the dawn to know its place, so that it might take hold of the skirts of the earth, and the wicked be shaken out of it?”

~Job 38:12-13

C. S. Lewis-

“To enter heaven is to become more human than you ever succeeded in being on earth; to enter hell is to be banished from humanity.” (The Problem of Pain)

“They Open A Door And Enter A World” (The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe)

Let the Light Enter

BY FRANCES ELLEN WATKINS HARPER

The Dying Words of Goethe“

Light! more light! the shadows deepen,
And my life is ebbing low,
Throw the windows widely open:
Light! more light! before I go.

“Softly let the balmy sunshine
Play around my dying bed,
E’er the dimly lighted valley
I with lonely feet must tread.

“Light! more light! for Death is weaving
Shadows ‘round my waning sight,
And I fain would gaze upon him
Through a stream of earthly light.”

Not for greater gifts of genius;
Not for thoughts more grandly bright,
All the dying poet whispers
Is a prayer for light, more light.

Heeds he not the gathered laurels,
Fading slowly from his sight;
All the poet’s aspirations
Centre in that prayer for light.

Gracious Saviour, when life’s day-dreams
Melt and vanish from the sight,
May our dim and longing vision
Then be blessed with light, more light.

ειρήνη – “Peace” in Greek, reference listed below.
