Thoughts for the Day
'Don't walk in FRONT; I may not follow.
Don't walk BEHIND; I may not lead.
Just walk BESIDE me & be my Friend'
A Wish ... A Blessing for each new day...
' May YOU know that absence is full of tender presence
And that nothing is ever lost or forgotten.
May the absences in your life be full of eternal echo.
May you be embraced by God
In whom dawn and twilight are but one'
