the oath…

 

I swear I will not dishonor my soul with hatred,
but offer myself humbly as a guardian of nature,
as a healer of misery, as a messenger of wonder,
as an architect of peace.

For the sake of all

The air is charged with anticipation. This call to awareness certainly seems personal as the cold of winter often draws us inward. There is attention to the pace of life, re-setting our movement with the day as we look for hints of what is to come. Yes, this reminder to be alert stirs within each of us but it is a stirring we share. We stay alert so that when the gift of love and grace arrives it can be announced throughout creation.
We take our post to watch for the sake of all.

#AdventWord #Alert

An instrument of gratefulness

 

Make me an instrument of gratefulness.
Guide me to the way of mercy and love that leads to peace;
That I may guide others to abundant life.
For the sake of healing my own heart and healing the world.

Like a leaf

Grace…

Mindfulbalance

When I rise up

Let me rise up joyful

like a bird.

When I fall

Let me fall without

regret

like a leaf
