Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
I wake up in the morning asking myself
what can I do today,
how can I help the world today.

(a network of grateful living)
Morning’s first thoughts. As the sun crests the skyline – do we awaken thinking of ourselves or do we reach beyond, praying for open eyes and softened hearts?
The world calls us to greet each day ready to reach out with compassion for all beings.
“It is while waiting for the coming of the reign of God- Advent after Advent – that we come to realize that its coming depends on us. What will we do either hasten or slow
, sharpen or dim our own commitment to do our part to bring it.” Joan Chittister, the Liturgical Year.
(picture and quote found – ACTS)
Creation, we are taught, is not an act that happened once upon a time, once and for ever.
The act of bringing the world into existence is a continuous process.
God called the world into being, and that call goes on.
There is this present moment because God is present.
Every instant is an act of creation.
Abraham Heschel, “The Sabbath”
