The prayer of the heart is the source
of all good,
refreshing the soul as if it were a garden.
~St. Gregory of Sinai (d.1360), Egypt
On this rainy Spring morning, I am grateful to hear chicks chattering about sweet bugs. I give thanks for drops of rain washing away the haze of pollen coating the earth. I ask for patience as I travel on my journey like a child learning her way. I thank the Creator for all that is here in this moment–the blessings, the challenges, and the grace of a new day. Amen
