Allowing Hope to Enter

(c) Adair W. Heitmann

“You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.”
– Thomas Merton

Thomas Merton OCSO was an American Trappist monk, writer, theologian, mystic, poet, social activist, and scholar of comparative religion.

Creativity and wellness message for today: Be like the spring crocuses pushing through the damp soil — reach for the light and allow nature’s balance to unfold.
