IT'S ALWAYS JAZZ SUNDAY: SEASON OF LENTEN AND LOVE & PASSION POEM #10

I love the season of Lent. We are reading from the Psalms and I love it. It fits right into my mood of Love and Passion in Poetry. What can be more passionate than the Psalms and we all know the Bible is all about LOVE! This is a good mood for me. I like feeling romantic and optimistic and hopeful and happy. I have surrounded myself with caring loving, people. I have long standing friendships that are are to me the air that I breathe. I 've not worried over too much, which for me is no easy feat. And I have changed my mind about my life and my expectations and to that end my world is changing..for the best.

Today I have chosen a Traditonal Ethopian Prayer:
"BE FOR US A MOON OF JOY"

May you be for us a moon of joy and happiness.
Let the young become strong and the grown man
maintain his strength, the pregnant woman delivered
and the woman who has given birth suckle her child.
Let the stranger come to the end of his journey and those
who remain at home dwell safely in their houses. Let
the flocks that go to feed in the pastures return happily. May
you be a moon of harvest and of calves. May you be a
moon of restoration and of good health.

Yes, I suspect that to be the case for a lot of US who are of a certain age to feel that way. (smile)
