Faith

“Faith is believing in something when common sense tells you not to.” ―Doris Walker, Miracle on 34th Street

Gems 5.205
Hope

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.” ―Robert Fulghum

Gems 5.206
Joy

“I don’t think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.” ―Anne Frank

Peace

“Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it finds its rest in thee.”
-Augustine of Hippo

Gems 5.208

“Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.”
-W.B. Yeats

I made this video nine years ago, and it is still the first thing I look at almost every day. If I have one prayer, it is this beautiful and timeless Prayer of Saint Francis.  Also “Thank you.” And an occasional, “HELP!”

“Here are the two best prayers I know: ‘Help me, help me, help me’ and ‘Thank you, thank you, thank you.” -Anne Lamott

Long Pin I Have Enough

I HAVE ENOUGH

I have enough sunshine, but I love the rain.
I have enough comfort, made sweeter by pain.
I have enough love, but I have room for more.
I have enough safety, and freedom from war.

I have enough room in my heart for more friends.
I have enough faith that our love never ends.
I have enough starlight and lovely blue skies.
I have enough wisdom to know I’m not wise.

I live in abundance,
but there is one thing, I find,
That is precious, and fleeting,
and running out: Time.
