“You need to claim the events of your life to make yourself yours. When you truly possess all you have been and done, which may take some time, you are fierce with reality.”
[Florida Scott Maxwell]

Remember that our lives are made of multiplicities of steps in a process leading us forward.
“Taking a compassionate view of myself and others, I act in the world with gentle temperance” Julia Cameron writes in her book Blessings. “I consciously choose to view all beings as having both dignity in their current selves and the potential to be ever more beautiful as they expand those selves.”

I embrace all that I am, all that we are.
Today I ask that we would all be blessed to create a living mural of our lives, to see all that is over time, looking at all that can be.
