How Is It with You?

On any given day life may be difficult?

Relationships 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.”*
