Wednesday of Hope – The Power of Goodness

A good deed doesn’t just evaporate and disappear. Its consequences saturate the universe and the goodness that happens somewhere, anywhere, helps in the transfiguration of the ugliness.

– Desmond Tutu

What Shall You Find?

Never be so focused on what you’re looking for that you overlook the thing you actually find.

– Ann Patchett

What Is Our Destiny?

The destiny of humans cannot be separated from the destiny of Earth.

Wednesday of Hope – Which Does Not Depend on Hopes

Faith leads to beliefs, just as hope leads to hopes. Yet faith does not depend on beliefs, nor does hope depend on hopes.

– David Steindl-Rast

Where is Beauty?

People often say that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves.

Wednesday’s Child Is Full of . . . Hope

The theme for the month of November (on Sundays) is still Gratitude. But for this particular Wednesday, I’ve decided we need a change in the words of the nursery rhyme. I’m going to squeeze a little hope in alongside gratitude. Don’t you think they’ll do well together???

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe  hope,
Thursday’s child has far to go,
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonnie and blithe and good and gay.
