Welcome to SBH
Thanks for stopping by the bear cave and checking it out. Being serious all the time is un-bear-able, so we have added a great comic strip at the bottom of page for your enjoyment. Please feel free to leave your thoughts,or shoot us an e-mail with the link to the right. We'd love to hear from all the creatures in the forest.

Celtic Faith

I came across this prayer in the book Listening for the Heartbeat of God, A Celtic Spirituality by J. Philip Newell. It's by a woman from the Isle of Harris who was exiled from her community due to a skin disease. She was made to live along the seashore, alone. Collecting plants and shellfish for food, she used the left-over boiled water to wash the sores on her skin...after a time the skin affliction was cured; healed by the power of God's creation!




There is no plant in the ground but is full of His virtue,

There is no form in the strand but is full of His blessing,
Jesu! Jesu,!Jesu! Jesu who ought to be praised.

There is no life in the sea, There is no creature in the river, There
is naught in the firmament, but proclaims His goodness. Jesu! Jesu! Jesu!
Jesu who ought to be praised.


There is no bird on the wing, There is no star in the sky, There is
nothing beneath the sun, but proclaims His goodness. Jesu! Jesu! Jesu! Jesu who
ought to be praised.
