Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice. Justice at its best is love correcting everything that stands against love.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I think that if we just listen to ourselves we know what it is we have to do. And I have come to think that however much it hurts, however hard it is, we have to listen. We have to live our lives.
If you think having and losing is so bad, try never having. Now that’s devastating.
Catherine Ryan Hyde
May the quiet fire of God’s love
arise within you.
May it flames of joy and peace
Enlighten your steps in this world,
And may you be like the burning bush,
The presence of God for each other,
That holy healing of light of love,
The breath of God made manifest
Become a prayer-maker. Why? Because what you face in your life is bigger than you can handle.
Martin Shaw (quoted in www.gratefulness.org)
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
If our mode of life leaves us feeling empty sometimes, it may be because we aren’t left to our own devices, we aren’t allowed to mull things over.
Now, picture your friends. Thank each of them for holding space for you along your life’s journey. Every single person has played a role in getting you to this moment. See their role in your life and honor it.
