Sanctus Est

“Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God.” - G.W. Carver

HAPPY EASTER!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm off to Ireland in two days!!!


Matthew 28: The Resurrection

1After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week,
Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

2There was a violent earthquake,
for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and,
going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.
3His appearance was like lightning,
and his clothes were white as snow.
4The guards were so afraid of him that they shook
and became like dead men.

5The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid,
for I know that you are looking for Jesus,
who was crucified. 6He is not here; he has risen,
just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.
7Then go quickly and tell his disciples:
‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead
of you into Galilee.There you will see him.’
Now I have told you.”

8So the women hurried away from the tomb,
afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
9Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said.
They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him.
10Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid.
Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee;
there they will see me.”

The Guards' Report
11While the women were on their way, some of the guards
went into the city and reported to the chief priests
everything that had happened. 12When the chief priests
had met with the elders and devised a plan,
they gave the soldiers a large sum of money,
13telling them, “You are to say,
‘His disciples came during the night and
stole him away while we were asleep.’
14If this report gets to the governor,
we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.”
15So the soldiers took the money
and did as they were instructed. And this story has been
widely circulated among the Jews to this very day.

The Great Commission
16Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee,
to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go.
17When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.
18Then Jesus came to them and said,
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything
I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always,
to the very end of the age.”


a. Matthew 28:19 Or into; see Acts 8:16; 19:5;
Romans 6:3; 1 Cor. 1:13; 10:2 and Gal. 3:27.

Poem Corner!

Here's something I wrote last night and polished up today!
I'm no Keats but I hope you like it.
Poetry's become the usual way for me to express
myself although I have a go at other things now and again.
I started writting during the second year of my A-levels.
Helped with the stress and I think expression is something
that helps you think.

Anyway here it is!


I long to live near the sea,
To see the waves crashing ahead of me,
A place with roaring waterfalls,
Glassy rivers and streams,
A place where I can often stand and dream.

I imagine the trickle
Of water over rocks and polished pebbles,
The assortment of trees rustling in the gentle wind,
While I stand on a big beautiful terrace,
Owning a panoramic view.

I often imagine trees of great height
With the birds singing,
Although at times out of sight.

Glistening mountains in the distance,
Stretching far and wide,
A brilliant sky of red, yellow, orange, pink and blue.

I'm standing by curved ornaments created of old,
The arches and statues working in harmony
With nature.
The leaves and vines intertwined with the stoney forms.

Here is calm, peace and rest in solitude,
With company it changes to joy in amplitude!

Well I'm pretty tired at the mo.
Church was good today.
I'm on my Easter break (yay) and have a few days
in Ireland to look forward to.
I'll be going in a couple of weeks but I'm still excited!
God is good as always so everything's cool!

I just wish I could find a way to create images
of beautiful landscapes. I'm not much good at painting
although I have painted propheticaly.
I only draw like that as well really. I'm not really a singer
apart from doing the usual singing in the bath or around the house.
I write poetry so I have created images that way.
I also like arranging things to look good like with this blog.
I like designing.

I just wonder where these will go. So far I've done
these on occasion. Perhaps I'd like to do
more prophetic creations. Haven't done those for a while.
Prophetic painting would be good. The one I remember doing
the most was when I painted some mountains,
a colourful sky and a valley.

These days I've been looking at art and
appreciating it in all their forms. Perhaps I'm just
finding my style and I suppose that's okay.

Actually I really fancy having a prophetic painting
session with my cell group. It's really cool when you can
all stand back at the end and see what picture God
has given you. I don't even think I have paint at home besides
my brother's water colours left on a shelf!

There's really cool art where people have used
photographs and printed them with new colour schemes.
That's a current fave of mine.

It's just a part of me really. It's part of how I work.
Sometimes without realising it, I end up designing
e.g. when I'm searching for certain desktop wallpapers
and pictures and then put them in a particular order to
follow on from each other. If you have a mac OS X then
you'll know what I mean. I do it in a way so
that the images have a certain effect.

Funny really.

Well anyway I think I've thought for long enough.

I'm tired. Good Night all.

Poem corner!


They strut when they walk,
Macho and aggressive,
Looking confident and arrogant,
Wearing their swaggers,
As a form of self protection.

A self protection that says to the world,
Keep away from me,
Don't mess with me,
Or I'll hurt you,
When all the time,
It's really them who are afraid.

They bowl around,
With exaggerated machismo,
Looking like they fear no one,
When deep down they are terrified.

They walk toughly,
And punctuate their mannerisms with aggression,
But it's no more than a facade,
A self preservation warning,
That they would fight,
Rather than die.

They wear their aggression,
Like armour,
An armour formed from the roots
Of tough and disturbing childhoods,
An armour constructed,
From growing up in tough places.

An armour formed from loveless environments,
Uncaring parents,
Violent parents,
Abusing parents.

An armour like shell,
That covers the deep soft centres
Of true love and beauty,
Hard coal like exteriors,
That cover rich diamond centres.

Only love can chip away,
The crude dirty coal like surfaces,
And free the diamonds,
And only love can make them,
Raw priceless treasures,
And only love's nurturing,
Can polish and make these diamonds,
Pure, clean and flawless.

By a friend of mine,
Paul Warwick

Hi well this picture sums up this site really! It's one of my favorite scenes in film which comes from...yes you guessed it..."The Passion".
I just had to post it on here! I saw it on the net a while ago and fell in love with this pose. I think a lot of meaning can be read from this image but it could just be me...

Today I'm at work (at an Estate Agents).
As you may or my not know, I'm a uni student and work on Saturdays!
So far so good concerning work! Study I must admit is backsliding so that's something I have to get on top of!
At uni I'm studying Classical Civilisation and English Literature so on some of my posts you will probably find pictures of my favorite ancient landscapes and maybe the occasional poem!
I'm also a nature and National Trust lover so pictures of greenery will be appearing soon! Perhaps some random Greek quotes and such will be appearing.

My title for this blog is "Sanctus Est" which is Latin, meaning "He is Holy". I got it from the film The Passion of the Christ. If you want to check out the site then here it is: Yay my first link on here!
Much of my inspiration comes from my faith in Jesus. So in a way this sight is also dedicated to him!

Oh dear I've just been rumbled! My boss has caught me on the net a second time! She's lovely. Better log off and come back later! I'm being a tad disrespectful really.

Adios for now!

This is my first post on Sanctus Est!
I hope you enjoy my rants on this site!
Have a look around and check things out when I get this page up and running!
