small things

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite prayers and quotes with you. Thanks for reading and pass them on!
on Food: Thank you for the food before us, the friends around us, the love between us and your presence among us. Amen
on Kindness: Three things in human life are important.
The first is to be kind.
The Second is to be kind.
And the third is to be kind." henry james to his nephew

on Silence: Silence is God's first language; everything else is a poor translation. In order to hear that language, we must learn to be still and to rest in God." thomas keating
on Health: Above all, do not lose your desire to walk. Everyday I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness." kierkegarrd
On Compassion: Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too. frederick buechner
