“May you awaken to the mystery of being here and enter the quiet immensity of your own presence. May you have joy and peace in the temple of your senses.

May you receive great encouragement when new frontiers beckon. May you respond to the call of your gift and find the courage to follow its path.

May your outer dignity mirror an inner dignity of soul. May you take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that seek no attention.

May the flame of anger free you from falsity. May warmth of heart keep your presence aflame and may anxiety never linger about you.

May you be consoled in the secret symmetry of your soul. May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder.”

~ John O’Donohue

I found these words especially moving today.

May you have a day filled with unfolding mystery and presence.

  19. Quiet (small) miracles are definitely meant to be celebrated, Val. This was a lovely, “serenity prayer” kind of poem you featured. The part about finding and following your calling was also meaningful to me. Thank you, this special photo represented my first comment.
