Let Us

“Let us not therefore go hurrying about and collecting honey, bee-like, buzzing here and there impatiently from a knowledge of what is to be arrived at, but let us open our leaves like a flower and be passive and receptive.”
-John Keats

Let us receive.  Let us be comforted by the endurance of nature, the changing of the seasons, the sun and moon’s light. 

Let us be kind to one another, not out of pure perfectionism, but out of pure love.  Let us be still and small, allowing God to be big. 

Moving gracefully into new changes, accepting grief or sorrow and however much time is required, we, too, are enduring.

Thank you all for your kindness and support.
