How Is It With You?

On any given day life may be difficult

Relationship strained to the breaking point?  

Grief compounded with loneliness?

Self respect diminished by shame and guilt?

Serenity overwhelmed with anxiety?

A world of troubles tumbling in?

A heaving heart beating like a tempest?

Faith eclipsed by despair?

There is hope! 

“Lift up your eyes upon this day breaking for you. Give birth again to the dream . . . 

“Women, children, men, take it into the palms of your hands. Mold it into the shape of your private need. Sculpt it into the image of your most public self . . .

“Each new hour holds new chances for a new beginning . . .

“The horizon leans forward offering you space to place new steps of change.”*
