We are all DESPERATE to put the shadows in our lives behind us. Never stop seeking the suns light to help us do it.

December 16, 2016 As I sit here in frigid New England awaiting a major snow storm, my brother is sitting in his warm home in Miami. Anyway, I hope that he is reading this particular quote on-line. It's SO true- the warmth of the sun is healing, and who among us doesn't want to abandon their burdens and make a new start?

We find greatest joy, not in getting, but in expressing what we are. Men do not really live for honors or for pay; their gladness is not the taking and holding, but in doing, the striving, the building, the living. It is a higher joy to teach than to be taught. It is good to get justice, but better to do it; fun to have things but more to make them. The happy man is he who lives the life of love, not for the honors it may bring, but for the life itself. —R.J. Baughan

Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those who are lonely, to weep with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak with the weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human. —Henri Nouwen
