This is my garden of lilies. It's a tough, fast-paced, competitive, rich, noisy, dangerous, crazy, beautiful, overwhelming world out there. I wanted something that would draw me into prayer right when I needed it. Here I can step into an imaginary sanctuary--imaginary not because it does not exist in reality but because it directs one of my strongest mental functions, my imagination, to contemplation.

It's a rather odd configuration, I suppose, using a blog as an anthology of prayer aids. Sometimes these posts are serial in nature and the order of posts will be a bit backwards as viewed from the main page. No matter. I hope that by using the tools like labels and links, a pray-er can follow the stepping stones through my little arrangement and meditate fruitfully on the love of our Creator.
