Supplication

Daily Prompt:  Transformation

almond

 

“May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge 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 us.”

 

The source of this text is unclear.  It has been attributed to both St. Therese of Liseaux and St. Therese of Avila.  But there is also some debate about whether the words used are too modern to even date this prayer to their time.   No matter…it’s lovely nonetheless.  It’s a gentle reminder that transformation can indeed occur when you remember “the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.”

  1. Hi,
    Your flowers are pretty. I photographed flowers like them at a garden last weekend.
    I am Janice. I met you at Roberta’s blog party. Maybe you can check out my blog if you need a blogging tip or two. That’s what I write about.

  2. Wonderful. Aspirational. The challenge in truly following the words and thoughts behind them, I suppose, is what makes it so valuable to make aspiring to follow them a part of your daily thoughts. An everyday struggle. Thank you!
