A gentle person treads lightly, listens carefully, looks tenderly, and touches with reverence. A gentle person knows what true growth requires. A gentle person knows that true growth requires nurture, not force. Let’s dress ourselves with gentleness. In our tough and often unbending world our gentleness can be a vivid reminder of the presence of God among us. —Henri Nouwen
In loving memory of my dear friend, Mattie Collie. Her unwavering faith and gentle healing spirit brought wholeness to many who sought her care. Her heart was filled to the brim with love and compassion for each person graced by her presence.
You are forever missed, Mattie and we forever blessed by knowing you.
