For everything there is a season, a time for meeting, a time to say goodbye. For everything there is a season, a time for loving, a time for letting go. In all things God is near, always guiding your way.í ~Celtic Blessing
At the heart of Celtic spirituality is that God is close and near. It embraces life and that everything works in cycles. There is a time and a place for all that needs to be done. Everything that lives and breathes is a reflection on the beauty of God. Such a spirituality is simple with a no nonsense approach. It is uplifting and to the point. It is close to people and nature. It is we who tend to over complicate matters when it comes to following God. An over emphasis on rules and regulations have often stifled areas of growth. No wonder Jesus attacked the Scribes and Pharisees for their negativity. Today I can be open to Godís gentle presence in my life, not distant or removed but instead close, near and guiding me through this day.
