Inspiration for the nation
For the crowd behind the cloud
Food for thought and divine drink
Found between workplace and sink

Is what we need first and foremost
Heaven’s breath, the Holy Ghost
Who will free us thoroughly
From life’s burdens – endlessly

Delight…

That came down from You
Through Your Spirit’s coal
With unthinkable
Bright light…

Set off fireworks
Though invisible
To nature and man
Branded on her heart
Fulfilled is Your plan

Because of public in the rear
Which focuses so close and near

On a hot summer day in July I sat sweating and squirming next to my more talented classmates in the attic of our old schoolhouse which was heated up like a sauna. The needle between my fingers slipped more than once over the fabric and the cross stitches I produced were anything but decent. Looking to my friends, I saw that they were almost ready and that their works looked terrific.

Since I have always been a perfectionist, I felt stressed. “Hurry up!” the teacher said, “there are only ten minutes left.”
Silently Susanne prayed, “Please, dear God, help me!”
Alas, nothing extraordinary happened.
I tried everything I could, but I was too slow. Sweating and almost weeping, I startled up as the teacher urged, “Just two minutes to go!”
My second prayer was not as polite as the first one. “Dear God, You MUST help me!!!”
What happened then?
A miracle.
