Divine Love – The Revelation That Changed Dr. Maya Angelou’s Life – 05/30/2014

 

I’ve been blessed to have Maya Angelou as my mentor, mother/sister, and friend since my 20s. She was there for me always, guiding me through some of the most important years of my life. The world knows her as a poet but at the heart of her, she was a teacher. ‘When you learn, teach. When you get, give’ is one of my best lessons from her. She won three Grammys, spoke six languages and was the second poet in history to recite a poem at a presidential inauguration. But what stands out to me most about Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it’s how she lived her life. She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace. I loved her and I know she loved me. I will profoundly miss her. She will always be the rainbow in my clouds.

There are two themes that ring out clearly from the hundreds — actually thousands — of stories I have read this month: first, that we all deeply desire to be known and loved by our Creator God, and second, that we all desperately need to know that the people we are closest to, our families and friends, love us just because we breathe.  Pretty simple, right?

  GOD LOVES ME

(For Children)

From the October 10, 1959 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

 

WHEN paths are steep
And sight is dim
I keep quite still
And think of Him,
Who loves me.

I seek the Christ
And hold Love’s hand;
I understand
God loves me.

My load is light;
My way is clear,
For now I see
I need not fear.
He loves me.
