It is very good during the year to find time and moments of celebration – to celebrate the gift of life. Celebratory events often bring out creativity, raise our energy, refresh us and bring out a playfulness, delight and joy. Often I find that our Breaking bread is one such event that uplifts of our spirits as we share food, conversation and sometimes talent or accomplishments here at TSC. Another special event is coming this next Wed. on Aug. 22nd –- out talent show for residents and staff. Come if you can and always seek to discover within each day that which lifts your Spirit. Consider asking for that grace from the Divine one in the midst of our work. Consider these lines from Psalm 144 from Nan Merrill’s Praying the Psalms.
Evoke the Child in our souls that purity and grace might flourish!
Inflame us with compassion so we nurture ourselves and others with healing and forgiveness!
Empower us with wisdom and knowledge, that we might bring forth the Diving Plan!
And let us recognize the Truth that clear vision might unfold.
Let us sing a new song to You, O Beloved; with drums and flutes let us express our joy!
Blessings, Sr. Elaine Abels, rscj Co-Director of Mission Integration & Spiritual Care
