On Valentine's Day...

St Theresa's prayer:
May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.

Chinese proverb:
It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.


  1. such a beautiful prayer, i shall pass it on to my daughter - much needed at the moment. thank you x x

  2. Ruthie - I'm so glad the prayer reached you -- and through you, your daughter -- when it did!

    Thanks for stopping by to share that thought.

    You too, Shanthy.
