McDowell Presbyterian Church

from Beth's Desk....

 Lines from the poetry of Mary Oliver (who died last month) speak to your heart or they do not.

In February, seemingly heavy with darkness, be lifted by Mary Oliver’s contemplations . . .

maybe the desire to make something beautiful is the piece of God that is inside each of us . . . only if there are angels in your head will you ever, possibly, see one . . .

Things! Burn them . . . More room in your heart for love, for the trees! For the birds who own nothing – the reason they can fly . . .

Let God and the world know you are grateful . . . I wish I could sing. A little thanks from every throat would be appropriate. . .

In the company of Mary Oliver, may your February be just a little lighter.

Pastor Beth
