Turn your eyes upon Jesus./Vire os seus olhos para Jesus.

Porque Deus, que mandou a luz resplandecer nas trevas, foi quem iluminou os nossos corações a fim de conhecermos a glória divina que resplandece na face de Jesus Cristo./For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
2 Coríntios 4:4-6/2 Chorinthians 4:4-6

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world./Ali estava a luz verdadeira, que alumia a todo homem que vem ao mundo.
John 1:9-13/João 1:9-13

Morning has broken.

“Do not, I beseech you, be troubled about the increase of forces already in dissolution. You have mistaken the hour of the night; it is already morning.”
Não vos preocupeis, suplico-vos, com o aumento de forças já em dissolução. Estais enganados com a hora nocturna; é que já é manhã.
Hilaire Belloc


I began…

I began traveling at the speed of thought
my body weary my consciousness fraught,
with the realization that we are more
than stardust at our very core.

I began thinking at the speed of thought
as my memory searched for which I sought,
the whole is greater than the sum of its’ parts
it was there I chose to make a start.

My thoughts moving faster than the speed of sound
mere atoms and particles could not be found.
The matter of mind though visible in light
was not what I sought, not now, not quite.

I began thinking at the speed of light
beyond the boundaries of mere sight,
searching for what is at the core
I looked inside the open door.

I began pondering thought itself
not material in nature, I thought to myself.
If matter were all and everything we are,
an evolution to consciousness from a mere star?

I began to see with a spiritual sight
materiality at last, having lost the fight.
Bringing to mind that we are certainly more
than stardust at our very core!

At the Speed of God

*Who is Gene Simia? I haven’t the faintest idea, I never met him and I probably never will. All I know is that he is an American from Ohio whose “interests include: Study of history, science, mathematics, music and the humanities (…) writing poetry, small stories(for children), pianist, singer and percussionist.”

Morning has broken.

To all who sing for Grace. 🙂

Foi então que alguém exclamou no meio da multidão: Senhor, peço-te que digas ao meu irmão que reparta comigo a herança do meu pai. Jesus respondeu:
Não sou juiz para decidir sobre essas questões legais entre vocês. Mas a questão de fundo é que não se deixem dominar pela avareza. Porque a vida verdadeira não está garantida pelos bens que se possa ter.
Lucas 12: 13-15

Aconteceu na véspera de Natal.

Anthem For Christmas (Hino para o Natal)

In the space of the beginning was the living Word of Light.
When this Word was clearly spoken all that came to be was right.
All creation had a language, words to say what must be said,
All day long the heavens whispered signing words in scarlet red.

Some failed to understand it, so God spoke His final Word,
On a silent night in Judah’s Hills a baby’s cry was heard.

“Glory!” sang the angel chorus, “Glory!” echoed back the night,
Love has come to walk among us, Christ the Lord is born this night.

All creation sing His praises Earth and heaven praise His name.
All who live come join the chorus, find the words His love proclaim…
Find the words His love proclaim.

God of this city.

(Deus desta cidade)
És a luz nesta escuridão,
És a esperança para os desesperados,
És a paz para os inquietos.
Tu És!

Quanta Luz – em Domingo de Pentecostes


Holy and Anointed One.

(Santo e Ungido de Deus.)
A Páscoa está próxima: – Siga a linha para a salvação. (Easter is coming: – Follow the line unto salvation.)

There is a light

that shines in the darkness.
