St. Teresa of Lisieux has the perfect words

May today there be peace with you.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of you.

There is so much in this prayer that resonates with me lately.
In my pressing for for purpose and reaching for 'rightness' in this leg of the journey; trust, awareness, contentment, dancing, praise and love sound like the perfect fit.

I needed to reminded that God and all this are there for you,the whole world and me too.

Peace to your heart.

Here is another quote by wise Teresa:

We must be firmly convinced that if we fight courageously and do not allow ourselves to be beaten, we will get what we want. No matter how small our gains, they will make us very rich. Do not be afraid that the Lord who has called us to drink of this spring will allow us to die of thirst.

What are you thirsty for?
