New Year

“Hope
Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering ‘it will be happier’…”

 

may it be so.


Quote: Alfred Lord Tennyson

Christmas Eve

On That Night
A Blessing for Christmas Eve
On that night when
you are holding
your very last hope,
thinking to let it go
as too small to be saved
or sanctified;
on that night when
you turn away at last
from the far horizon
over which you had thought
your life would come
to find you;
on that night,
believe me,
this is where
the ache
will give way
to the mystery
and the blessing
that seemed so distant
will quietly
come to meet you,
holding your heart
in its two
luminous hands.

Holiday ride (Re-post)

 

This is a season like no other for emotions to rise both joyful and sad. I share this in gratitude for the recognition of both.

Thank you, David Kanigan

Morning prayer

Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, savor you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
