Devotion needed… apply within

Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness.
It is not attained through self-gratification
but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.

Bearing fruit

Every leaf that grows will tell you
what you sow will bear fruit.
So if you have any sense my friend,
don’t plant anything but love.

wishing for a safe nest…

A bird is safe in its nest — but that is not what its wings are made for.

We fly with wings that make us unique – each of us.

Out of our safety zone, we stretch to seek solidarity, speak out for equality, and compassionately gather the lost and deserted.

These wings carry us further than ever imagined and so we must learn to fly, living each moment by faith.

It would be so easy to stay nestled in the safety of all that is familiar. Yet within the warmth and comfort of that nest we grow to understand its importance.

We must fly to ensure the same safety for all.

the gift of starting over

thank you, David Kanigan

Live & Learn

And we want to live right where black oaks lived,
Once very quietly and still…
Because we are imperfect and love so
Deeply we will never have enough days,
We need the gift of starting over, beginning
Again: just this constant good, this
Saving hope.

~ Nancy Shaffer, from Because We Spill Not Only Milk from Instructions in Joy
