Light, Laughter and Grace

“We’re here for a little window. And to use that time to catch and share shards of light and laughter and grace seems to me the great story.”― Brian Doyle, One Long River of Song: Notes on Wonder

“To create a space for all our words, Drawing us to listen inward and outward. We seldom notice how each day is a holy place Where the eucharist of the ordinary happens, Transforming our broken fragments Into an eternal continuity that keeps us. Somewhere in us a dignity presides That is more gracious than the smallness That fuels us with fear and force, A dignity that trusts the form a day takes. So at the end of this day, we give thanks For being betrothed to the unknown And for the secret work Through which the mind of the day And wisdom of the soul become one.”― John O’Donohue, To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings

May I experience the immensity of this day.
To not let it pass without giving and receiving light.
To paint brilliant color on the blank canvas.
To delight in all that surrounds and is within.
To connect with others to share our journey.
To embrace awe, wonder and joy without question.
To write the story, paint the scene, live life that passes quickly.
Shards of light, laughter and grace.

“May I live this day Compassionate of heart, Clear in word, Gracious in awareness, Courageous in thought, Generous in love.”― John O’Donohue, To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings
