Divine Conversation April 11




"A virtuous life is simply impossible
without the aid of prayer."

St. John Chrysostom




And what is prayer?
Just talking,
having conversation,
with our God.

Dear Micki--When I saw this holy card my heart just jumped--I have truly never seen such a treasure of a portrayal of Jesus and His Mother so beautifully and delightfully portrayed---oh, thankyou, so much for sharing such a treasure. Just think, He did laugh and coo and smile so irrisistably as all babies do!

Ditto to Diane's comment! This one is a true gem. I have often wondered what conversations of the everyday type were like between God and the Mother of God. Did they talk on and on about the spiritual life, the truths of God? Can you imagine living with and raising God incarnate? I'd start with "Ok, just how old is the earth? Why did did you create dinosaurs? Why do we have to eat three times a day and sleep so much every night? The stars are beautiful, but you didn't just create them for us to look at right? I mean...they must serve some other purpose?" I know there are rather frivolous things, but the deeper stuff would be talked about too! :)

Dear Micki,
I think that some of the very best prayers we can say is when we sit and just take the time to talk to God. I do that a lot.
God Bless,
Ed

I quite agree about this wonderful image.

You have a marvelous collection, and you present us with such careful scans -- you are doing a great service. Please keep it up.

Diane - I bet you enlarged the picture to see that adorable smiling face of Jesus. Thanks for always checking each days cards.

Sanctus Belle - You made me smile to read your questions....I think we would all like to know the answers to that.

Ed - How true...and isn't that all He wants...for us to be honest in our talk to Him. You make it sound as easy as it is, yet too many struggle with "divine conversation."

Irene - You are very generous in your compliments...thank you. Hope the travels continue to run smoothly.

Tracy - Thank you so much...please take all the inspiration you can find here.

Alexandra - Thank you.
