Drip, drip, drip.

As the days become longer and more yellow comes into the morning light I can feel my soul stirring to wakefulness again.  It has been a long cold winter but warmer days are here and the ice is almost gone.  What beauty it can hold within!  Not much longer now before all the ice and snow are gone and we have mud and grass again!

Celtic Blessing

May the blessing of light be on you
light without and light within.
May the blessed sunlight shine on you
and warm your heart
till it glows like a great peat fire.

May the deep blessings of earth be with us.
May the fathomless soundings of seas surge in our soul.
May boundless stretches of the universe echo in our depths
to open us to wonder
to strengthen us for love
to humble us with gratitude
that we may find ourselves in one another
that we may lose ourselves in gladness
that we give ourselves to peace.

J. Philip Newell from his upcoming book Praying with the Earth

An AFWJ friend recently called my attention to a wonderful piece on NPR about writing your memoir in only six words.  What a wonderful challenge.  Here’s what I came up with for mine:

Healing dreams move love into the world

How would you sum up your life story in only six words?

Here are two of my favorites from NPR
