Mt Angel Abbey

Let us not forget to seek wisdom. Let us take time to be still.

There is beauty all around.
Let us be still and behold it.

Let the mother hold fast her young.

Let the father embrace his child.

He is beckoning to you and I.

The door is before me. I choose to knock.
Will you?
Psalm 118:5

This life is but a breath, and the bell is tolling.

Yet, wisdom continues to call us.
Even death cannot silence wisdom.

Reading the Beatitudes everyday this week. 
Join me?

He said:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

We miss her, but have hope.

We remember your love Grandma in all we do.
 You are an amazing woman.
