Flying on the wings of….. kindness, appreciation, compassion and persistence

~
A  wish…
that we may fly on the wings of…..
kindness, appreciation, compassion and persistence

~

~

 Expanding upon this wish…
with words from Brother David Steindl-Rast,
from his beautiful and inspiring video “A Good Day”

~

“So these are just a few of an enormous number of gifts to which you can open your heart.  And so I wish that you would open your heart to all of these blessings and let them flow through you.”     (from  “A Good Day”)


“That everyone you meet today will be blessed by you….
just by your eyes…
by your smile…
by your touch…
by your presence…
and let them flow through you.
Let the gratefulness overflow into blessings all around you.
And then it would really be a good day.”l ou.
(from  “A Good Day”)

flying on our own wings,
wings with so many precious qualities delicately woven into them…
flying gracefully along,
with kindness, appreciation, compassion and persistence…
with strength and courage
and perhaps even…
~  wisdom  ~
a sincere and heartfelt wish
