….. Henry David Thoreau

we are here to find our gifts, to share them, to love……how do we find the kindness of our mission? how do we share the joy of simplicity?……how do we know we have arrived?

Wonder, as the child of mystery, is a natural source of prayer. One of the most beautiful forms of prayer is the prayer of appreciation. This prayer arises out of the recognition of the gracious kindness of creation. We have been given so much. We could never have merited or earned it. When you appreciate all you are and all you have, you can celebrate and enjoy it. You realize how fortunate you are. Providence is blessing you and inviting you to be generous with your gifts. You are able to bless life and give thanks to God. The prayer of appreciation has no agenda but gracious thanks. Nothing is given to you for yourself alone. When you receive some blessing or gift, you do it in the name of others; through you, they, too, will come to share in the kindness of Providence. …….John O’Donohue

Openness –
the heart’s pure, unconditional yes –
is love’s essence.
