A safe life?

It is only by following your deepest instinct that you can lead a rich life

and if you let your fear of consequence prevent you

from following your deepest instinct

then your life will be safe, expedient and thin. 


–Katharine Butler Hathaway


help me dedicate myself to You

far-east-1950-05Dear God,

Please help me dedicate

myself to You–

to do the work,

to quiet my mind,

that I might serve You best.


Please introduce my heart

to peace,

and guide me to the chamber

where my heart

can rest 

and find itself.

Please take me there.
