My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love You!  I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and do not love You.

Bless the Lord, my soul!

​"I have built heaven, my upper chamber, and established my vault over the earth.  I summon the waters of the sea and pour them upon the surface of the earth" -Amos 9:6

Writing Essentials:

Write daily.

​Write freely.

So, our lives, if left untended,,

Are brittle, wounded,,

bereft and all alone...

We must praise our Maker

Exercise strength of hearts and hands.

-​Mary Olivia Patiño

Moments of Grace

​a Collection of Poetry Inspired by Faith

Writing is a journey. 

Along the road,

we befriend others as well

as our deepest memories.  

Our souls yearn

to find meaning and to give thanks.

​Writing is a pilgrimage.

Writing is balm for the soul

The Canticle of Mary

"And Mary said:

'My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant. From this day all generations will call me blessed.'"

-Luke 1:46-48

​​Create your Writing Space

Whether by yourself or in groups...

Sitting under blue skies

In a cove,

Energized by the sea,

over coffee

Inspiration whispers


​"Come, sit with me."

Writing reflects our faith,

our spirituality, and our lives.

"He would withdraw to deserted places to pray."

​                  -Luke 5:16
