Appreciate the light

The holidays go by so fast...
Make time to appreciate the beauty and the light.

Use your gifts

It’s not enough to simply have a gift.
You really need to take it out and use it,
Or it’ll just get rusty and freeze up...

Treasuring community

Treasure those moments
When we gather in community
And share a meal together...

No need to be perfect

Just a reminder:
You don’t have to be totally tidy or clean,
Unblemished, in the prime of youth,
Or perfect in any way: you are still beautiful.

Sharing the pond

We may be going different directions,
But never forget that we share the same pond:
Whatever you dump here affects us both.

The enchantment of mystery

Be not afraid, but curious
about our differences:
A little bit of mystery adds enchantment
to the forest that we share.

We are community

However you move forward in this world —
Whether sails or paddles, motor or oars —
Together we make up a community:
Let’s coexist in peace and mutual respect.

Look up from Now

Find a moment to look up from the Now:
From the mending and the bills;
From to-dos and complications,
And appreciate the beauty of the day...

Break the chains of expectation

Breathe in divine acceptance: let your chest expand
And break the chains of others’ expectations,
Lest you pass those binding agents on
To stunt the growth of those whose lives you touch.
