Beyond our own time…

The eyes of the future are looking back at us
and they are praying for us to see beyond our own time.
They are kneeling with hands clasped that we might act with restraint,
that we might leave room for the life that is destined to come.

To live

Just to be is a blessing. Just to live is holy.


Quote: Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel

what we give

 

I began my blog 10 years ago. The first entries were short. Each tested my confidence in writing and sharing myself to the unknown world of blogging. Over the years my bench has become a good place to reflect and share things that have inspired me.

Not long after I began this writing, I was introduced to Brené Brown. Her TedTalk on Vulnerability was moving and I felt a good piece to share. It has obviously spoken to many of my readers. Yes, I say many… as of yesterday that posting has been looked at 2484 times.

Several of my posts have been sought out more than once. I have grown in my comfort to share my stories and reflections.

My gratitude for Brené Brown continues. Her insight speaks to a universal longing to be bold and vulnerable. Her words resonate with life’s journey and intent.

It is right to celebrate my 10 years as a blogger with another post that includes Brené Brown. This quote gives me hope and nudges me on to contribute what I have to brighten life’s path and encourage others to do the same.

Sunday quote

 

This morning,  thousands rose early to catch the birdsong at dawn in an annual celebration entitled “Dawn Chorus Day” which went out live on radio from locations all over the world

A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer,

it sings because it has a song.

Maya Angelou
