Dawn finds me ready to welcome you, my God.

A day of sunshine filled with His blessings ... working this morning, then an afternoon and dinner with two wonderful friends.

A Day of Joy

The last I saw her was 35 years ago until today. My friend, from high school, who lived a few doors down the street, my friend. I was in her wedding, she in mine. Life and distance between us these past years. For those who know me I do not use the word friend lightly. It is given to precious few and to her with whom I spent today. Today which has given me a tremendous gift of blessings and friendship.

We visited her mother's grave, shared much conversation, noon time mass, and lunch. We drove to the street we lived on how many years ago. And in all this time, nothing has changed between us, it is the same easy, caring, loving friend. I know that God has brought her back into my life and I am thankful. She holds a part of my heart and I hers, after all, that's what a friend does.

Everyone who waits for the Lord finds joy.

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.

{Blessed Teresa of Calcutta}

Lord, true light and source of all light, listen to our morning prayer. Turn our thoughts to what is holy and may we ever live in the light of your love.
In the silence of the morning I see the first light of dawn and I thank you for this day. Soon the birds will come to feed, the earth awakens. I ask your blessings and graces.

May you all be filled with His light.

Be gracious and bless us, Lord and let your face shed its light on us so that we can make you known with reverence and bring forth a harvest of justice.
