Meditation on Wonder


I hope that you are able to get out in the world today and wonder at it and everything in it.

“Like the cosmic dust following after a great Perseid meteor, we are the living remnants of time and all that has come to pass in its wake—briefly shining lights on the way to eternity. We are only visible to the naked eye for an instant. Take this moment to shine like the start dust you are. May the light of our time on earth shine to bless the world and each other. Shine. Shine. Shine.” by Mary Edes




Miracles are everywhere

Sometimes we get caught up in the busy of the day to day. Sometimes our hearts get broken and we are discouraged. It is hard then to remember that being alive is a miracle.


There is a sky. There is an earth. There is a you. There is a me. There is an amazing  universe for us to discover.
