Renew Your Spirit

Celestial spirit that doth roll
The heart’s sepulchral stone away,
Be this our resurrection day,
The singing Easter of the soul –
O gentle Master of the Wise,
Teach us to say: “I will arise.”
~Richard Le Gallienne

Remember the Virtues

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”

**Mother Teresa

Heaven’s Grace

There is lasting kindness in Heaven when no kindness is found upon earth.
**Lady Gregory

Happy Thanksgiving!

“For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.”
**Ralph Waldo Emerson

Remembering Our Roots

“Thanksgiving is the holiday of peace, the celebration of work and the simple life… a true folk-festival that speaks the poetry of the turn of the seasons, the beauty of seedtime and harvest, the ripe product of the year – and the deep, deep connection of all these things with God.”

**David Grayson

Shhhhhhhh

A man asked Mother Teresa:

“When you pray, what do you say?

“I just Listen.”

“And what does God say?”

“He also just listens.”

Perseverance in Faith

“Christianity has not been tried and found wanting;

it has been found difficult and not tried.”

–G. K. Chesterton
