Be mindful of what you put in your body; in your mind. We not only consume the food that we eat, but also the thoughts, images, and energy we surround ourselves with. Choose wisely.

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

I had such a longing for virtue, for company.
I wanted Christ to be as close as the cross I wear.
I wanted to read and serve, to touch the altar linen.
Instead I went back to the woods where not a single tree turns its face away.

Instead I prayed, oh Lord, let me be something useful and unpretentious.
Even the chimney swift sings.
Even the cobblestones have a task to do, and do it well.

Lord let me be a flower, even a tare; or a sparrow.
Or the smallest bright stone in a ring worn by someone brave and kind, whose name I will never know.

Lord, when I sleep I feel near you.

When I wake, and you are already wiping the stars away,
I rise quickly, hoping to be like your wild child the rose, the honey-maker and honey-vine;
a bird shouting its joy as it floats through the gift you have given us:
another day.

What you do doesn’t determine who you are. Rather, who you are in Christ determines what you do.

Our job is to love people. When it hurts. When it’s awkward. When it’s uncool and embarrassing. Our job is to stand together, to carry the burdens of one another and to meet each other in our questions.

Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
