Teach us

Teach us to welcome others as you welcomed us, to love our neighbors as ourselves, and to be deterred by neither rule nor law in showing your love, compassion, and grace to every single person we meet. Teach us to love, Lord. Amen.

Only when we tarry do we touch the holy.

Those who love you.....

Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.
~African saying~
