Did Someone say BLUE?

Every time I hear the word BLUEhttps://traveltalk.me.uk/2021/07/04/life-in-colour-26/, I remember this childhood prayer I learned in school.

Lovely Lady dressed in blue ——-
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little boy,
Tell me what to say!

Did you lift Him up, sometimes,
Gently on your knee?
Did you sing to Him the way
Mother does to me?

Did you hold His hand at night?
Did you ever try
Telling stories of the world?
O! And did He cry?

Do you really think He cares
If I tell Him things ——-
Little things that happen? And
Do the Angels WINGS

Make a noise? And can He hear
Me if I speak low?
Does He understand me now?
Tell me ——-for you know.

Lovely Lady dressed in blue ——-
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little boy,
And you know the way.

EVOKE TRUTH

Doves

This post quoted from “The Imitation of Christ” a spiritual diary by Thomas Kempis born about the year 1380 an ordained priest. His career after that was devoted to practicing the counsels of spiritual perfection and to copying books for the schools.
Quoting from the said book on advice when reading Holy Scripture is to EVOKE TRUTH, not eloquence; and every part read in the spirit in which it was written. For in the Scriptures we ought to seek profit rather than polished diction.
Likewise, we ought to read simple and devout books as willingly as learned and profound ones. We ought not to be swayed by authority of the writer, whether he be a great literary light or an insignificant person, but by the love of pure truth. We ought not to ask who is speaking, but mark what is said. Men pass away, but the truth of the Lord remains forever. God speaks to us in many ways without regard for persons.

ALWAYS EVOKE TRUTH!
