A Prayer

A friend just sent me a chain e-mail. I usually dismiss them as I don't like the idea of having to put a burden on friends but the words spoke to me so I thought it would be nice to share it here.

Saint Theresa's Prayer

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the
love that has been given to you.

May you be confident knowing you are a child of God. Let this
presence 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.

Historical Moment in Time

Barack Obama has become the first African American President of the United States of America.
Watching the definitive moment on TV, I truly felt that I had witnessed an amazing historical moment in time. There is an overwhelming sense of joy to know that we might be making some kind of progress as the human race. There is hope afterall.
