scent moment

when your life has become most frantic
when fear and worry have made their home in you
and anxiety attends your days
may there come from somewhere
the scent of pomegranate and cedar
apple and myrrh
and fig

family moment

only when we have the courage to cross the street
and look in one another's eyes
can we see there
that we are children of the same God
and members of the same human family

Henri Nouwen

orphan moment

"Sons are teachable, orphans are not. Orphans earnestly desire some spiritual achievement and distinction and are willing to achieve it, they have a desire to be seen and counted among the mature. Sons are content simply to experience daily the Fathers love and acceptance and be sent as a representative of His love to family and others."
Jack Frost "Slavery to Sonship"

running moment

there is a little boy
who still loves to run
inside every man
no matter his age
