May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May today there be peace within.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and
allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of you.
(St. Teresa of Avila)
Today I swept the kitchen, first thing in the morning,
to prepare for more visitors.
This house is like a way station, and one guest is hardly gone
before the next arrives. I feel grateful and full.

Today I walked home barefoot
because the sidewalk was warm and the air was cool
and the world was beautiful —
and I believe a beautiful world should be felt up close.

Today I ran into a friend at the train station,
an unexpected delight to us both,
and someone made space for us to sit next to each other
so we could chat.
