May I live this day

Compassionate of heart,

Clear in word,

Gracious in awareness,

Courageous in thought,

Generous in love.

Deeper than reason


What’s magical, sometimes, has deeper roots than reason.

thank you, Karl Duffy

choose love – always

 

We must continually choose love in order to nourish our souls and drive away fear,
just as we eat to nourish our bodies and drive away hunger.

As if it were new…

Blessing
Ancient One
who makes all things new,
may we receive with gentleness
and touch with hopefulness
and protect with fierceness
and love with tenderness;
and may we celebrate with gratefulness
and welcome with humbleness
and tend with gracefulness
all that you give.
