The First Verb: Hildegard

The Holy Spirit animates
all, moves
all, roots
all, forgives
all, cleanses
all, erases
all, our past mistakes, and then
puts medicine on our wounds.

We praise the Spirit of incandescence
for awakening
and reawakening
all
creation.

Hildegard of Bingen

Definitely a Lenten meditation.  Wishing everyone a meaningful yet lovely Lent.

The artwork is by a young Russian woman artist known as Inna Deriy.  See more of her work here.

Oh, Catherine, this is so beautiful. And I love trees, so the image is stunning with it.

Thank you, dear friend, also for the link to the Austin mission church!

DUH--look what I found over at my blog.

Thanks for the comments, Morgan and Jan. I hope to post more, perhaps original work and that of others throughout Lent.
