“To have courage for whatever comes in life – everything lies in that.”

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
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 us.

Remembering one of the greatest and most brilliant of women (or of men for that matter) in the histories of history.  Let there be dancing!  Let there be partridge!  Shake up things and challenge the establishment.  Do something brilliantly bold and good in honor of St. Teresa of Avila.  She’d want you to.

  1. I try to remind myself how lucky I am, but when you feel the way you feel, it’s hard sometimes. It’s just never enough, is it? Any of it, I mean. Lovely image. Mona Lisa-esque.

    1. Sometimes it is impossible to feel lucky or blessed. These words or prayers are mantras not only when things are good but even more pointedly when they are terrible. Words to keep you strong and to keep you company when you ride out the storm. Be gentle and loving with yourself at those times.
