I was born on Friday, January 10, 1947.
On one of my birthdays, I received a card that said:
'a birthday is
the start of another
around the sun.
enjoy the ride."
I recently realized that in turning 69,
I am now beginning my 70th trip around the sun!
(That is a big number!!)
Over my previous trips, I have accumulated many clippings --
which I consider part of my patchwork quilt spirituality.
As I begin this next trip around the sun,
I want too share some of the better ones in the coming days.
Here are a few for today:
LISTEN to the song that resonates within you,
and discover where the sacred and the everyday intersect.
When there is no wind, row.
Hope is not pretending
that troubles don't exist...
It is the trust
that they will not last forever,
that hurts will be healed
and difficulties overcome...
It is faith
that a source of strength
and renewal lies within
to lead us through the dark
to the sunshine...
