a Sunday Blessing

There is nothing so secular that it cannot be sacred,
and that is one of the deepest messages of the Incarnation.
Bach was a man of deep and profound religious faith, 
a faith which shines through most of his secular music.
As a matter of fact,
 the melody of his moving chorale "O sacred head now wounded"...
was the melody of a popular street song of the day,
but Bach's religious genius was so great 
that it is now recognized a one of the most superb pieces of religious music ever written.

I pray that you will find the sacred in your everyday doings this week.


  1. Thank you for that beautiful post and gorgeous photos Pam! How true!
    If only we would stop our rushing about each day and stand in a quiet still place inside ourselves and become aware of the sacredness in everything around us, I believe we would have much more fulfilled and happy life.
    This week I am going to make that my goal!
    Thank you again....Tina xo

  2. Your photos are perfect with the words of Madeline L'Engle - she is a woman who had an incredibly rare and beutiful gift.
