Wednesday of Hope – In a Power Greater than Ourselves

It is this belief in a power larger than myself and other than myself which allows me to venture into the unknown and even the unknowable. 

– Maya Angelou

Gratitude the Breath of Life


Every time you express gratitude or compassion for any aspect of yourself or someone else, you breathe life in.

Gratitude in Abundance

Giving thanks for abundance is sweeter than the abundance itself.

– Jalaluddin Rumi

Wednesday of Hope – with Gratitude

Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting, but ripening like the tree which does not force its sap and stands confident in the storms of spring without the fear that after them may come no summer. It does come. But it comes only to the patient, who are there as though eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly still and wide. I learn it daily, learn it with pain to which I am grateful: patience is everything!

– Rainer Maria Rilke

Wednesday of Hope – One Day at a Time

Today is only a small manageable segment of time in which our difficulties need not overwhelm us. This lifts from our hearts and minds the heavy weight of both past and future.

– Anonymous, One Day at a Time in Al-Anon

Thanking heaven even for our difficulties and misfortunes is the best way to transform them. You will see your difficulties in a different light, as if you had wrapped them in a film of pure gold.

– Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

The Greatest Gift

The greatest gift one can give is thanksgiving. In giving gifts, we give what we can spare, but in giving thanks we give ourselves.

– David Steindl-Rast, Gratefulness, the Heart of Prayer
