If you know me you will know my father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.
For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life in order to take it up again.
If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish and it will be done for you.
Jesus said to her (Mary Magdalene), “Do not hold on to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father.”
Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and lives it remains a single grain, but if it dies it bears much fruit.
I have said these things to you while I am still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you.
Word and Image
offers two parts of my morning ritual, scripture and visual art. I make no
attempt to related the two (as I do in my daily quote and blog entries) and
yet, sometimes that will happen, for as we know God works in mysterious ways.
