Well, Valentine's Day has come and gone,

but happily not the love,

which is what we want to be all about,

not just on Valentine's Day,

but on  every one of the three hundred sixty five days

of our living.

" There remains faith, hope, and love,

and the greatest of these is love."

     ( 1 Corinthians 13: 13 )

 So, to keep ourselves centered on love,

 how about we have our own little
                  LOVE SPA

to brighten and warm things up

in dreary, dark, cold February?

After all, not only does

 " Love makes the world go round,"

its Absolutely Divine!

    " God is Love."

      ( 1 John 4:8 )

Here are two beautiful and uniquely different  sharings on

The Love Who Is God.

In the nakedness of  our Love Spa,

let's bask in their

brilliant warmth.

Nothing is more practical than finding God,

than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way.

What you are in love with,

what seizes your imagination,

will effect everything.

It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning,

what you will do with your evening,

how you will spend your weekends,

what you will read.

whom you know,

what breaks your heart,

and what amazes you

with joy and gratitude.

Fall in  love,

stay in love,

and it will decide everything.

                     Pedro Arrupe

For this second piece,

Viewer Discretion Is Advised.

It's ever  so Real

and its really free,

as its author, a medieval mystic.

Using a powerful metaphor,

we are reminded,

hopefully " re-hearted," that

The Ultimate,

The Bedrock,

The Energy

of what

 " IS,"

aka God,

is a crazy, wild


C.S. Lewis referring to God said,

" He's wild you know!"

So come on,

we're going to get wonderfully, wildly tossed around a bit.


                                  Last time

                 When you walked through the city

                        So beautiful and naked,

                You left a thousand women crazy

                     And impossible to live with.

                        You left married men

                   Confused about their gender.

              Children ran from their classrooms,

                And teachers were glad you came.

                     And the sun tried to breakout

                      Of its royal cage in the sky

                        And at last, and at last,

                Lay its Ancient Love at your feet.


To mix the metaphor,

its pretty cool out here in the bright warmth of our

                       Love Spa !!

Let's not be in a hurry to cover up and leave!!

Thanks for you good company!

 Holding you in

God's Dear Love,
