A Library of Devotional Classics

Cataloging the timeless volumes we cherish…

While Sheltering in Grace
amid Streams in the Desert,
I hear Jesus Calling.
"Come Away My Beloved," He says.
And so I do.
We gather in The Upper Room
where we are nourished by Our Daily Bread.

My Utmost for His Highest
is all that matters to me.
I know that by spending Time with Him
I will be Experiencing God.
It inspires me to Live in Grace and Walk in Love.
And through it all I discover 
The Christian's Secret to a Happy Life
includes Cold Tangerines.

Morning and Evening
The Pursuit of God beckons me
with Daily Light.
The Confessions of St. Augustine
as well as Devotions by John Donne
offer me Spiritual Friendship.
As I walk among The Little Flowers of St. Francis of Assisi
I look Unto the Hills.
Though shrouded by The Cloud of Unknowing
I sense Revelations of Divine Love.

In the Wisdom of the Desert I find
A Testament of Devotion.
It is A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life
providing me with A Simple Way to Pray.
By Practicing The Presence of God
I discover The Sacrament of the Present Moment.
In The Healing Light
I glimpse The Imitation of Christ.

Through Deeper Experiences of Famous Christians
Jesus Always invites me to share Life Together
in an Interior Castle.
And among the countless volumes of this devotional library,  
I am immersed in The Life of God in the Soul of Man.
