    Thank you!

    I keep this quote on my fridge:



    One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times. The light of the soul throws sparks, can send up flares, builds signal fires, causes proper matters to catch fire. To display the lantern of soul in shadowy times like these -- to be fierce and to show mercy toward others; both are acts of immense bravery and greatest necessity. Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it. If you would help to calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do.


    It is so true, and I am grateful today for the reminder that I ma not built to be kept in a
    safe harbor. There are times for it...and truly it is not what I was built for.

    Bleasings,
