Today is also Holy

today between the first night of the Angel of Death

Passing Over,

and the day they say

Jesus Died….

and the moment of the Blood Moon passed

and we are still here.

yes, today is Holy, as are You.


this was sent to me this morning and it speaks to me if this holy day in many ways.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes writes in The Faithful Gardener:

Refuse to fall down. If you cannot refuse to fall down,

refuse to stay down.

If you cannot refuse to stay down,

lift your heart toward heaven,

and like a hungry beggar,

ask that it be filled.

You may be pushed down.

You may be kept from rising.

But no one can keep you

from lifting your heart

toward heaven –

only you.

It is in the middle of misery

that so much becomes clear.

The one who says nothing good

came of this,

is not yet listening.


– Clarissa Pinkola Estes, The Faithful Gardener
