“It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you” to choose me in friendship.

John 15:16

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What!”

“What draws people to be friends is that they see the same truth.  It is when we notice the dirt that God is most present in us; it is the very sign of His presence.”

C.S. Lewis

*

…it behooves us to practice the precious moment of presence with friends…

WEDNESDAY’S VACATION BLESSING

“Every person needs to take one day away.  A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.  Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence.  Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.  Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”

Maya Angelou

…one week will do me wonders…

WEDNESDAY’S BLESSING – Her Quote

“When I think of death, I only regret that I will not be able to see this beautiful country anymore…unless the Indians are right, and my spirit will walk here after I’m gone.

HAIKU

Telling one’s own truth

The mark of beauty and praise

Should be everyone’s aim

Georgia O’Keeffe was 99 years old when she died in 1986, leaving the world with over 2,000 pieces of art…she will always inspire me to write my truth.

WEDNESDAY’S BLESSING

“What does it profit a man if he gain the whole world, but suffer the loss of his own soul?  Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?”

JOSEPH

Painting of Saint Joseph and Child

by Sebastian Martinez Domedel

WEDNESDAY’S BLESSING

Feast of Joseph The Worker

It’s so apparent, the loving glance of a father to his child as he resists his father’s hand saying “but, I am me!”

Joseph spoke not even one word in Holy Scripture, yet his role as faithful worker and protector of Mary and Jesus still radiates a perfect example of fatherhood for our generation.  He is forever the ‘guardian of you and your families.”

“By the labor of your hands, you shall eat; blessed are you and blessed will you be, allelulia.”

Psalm 128
