The greatest gift we can give those who left us is to live fully in their place.
~Teresa Savarin

Sorrow sweeps everything out of your house so new joy can find space to enter.


Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel down and kiss the ground.


One of the spiritual tasks of life is to feed hope. Hope is not something to be found outside of us. It lies in the spiritual life we cultivate within. The whole purpose of wrestling with life is to be transformed into the self we are meant to become, to step out of the confines of our false securities and allow our creating God to go on creating in us.
