Thank you!!

Thank you!!

I’ve shared this prayer from the Dominican mystic, Meister Eckhart, before. And it bears repeating.

In Return for Our Gratefulness . . .

In gratitude for your own good fortune you must render in return some sacrifice of your life for other life.

For human beings it is impossible, but not for God. All things are possible for God.”

So, just how are these colors possible?
