Staying somewhat cozy in my treehouse (it’s still got some caulking to do) watching the birds come to and from my recently filled bird feeder. First bird of the day was my namesake, Chickadee. 



Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers

but to be fearless in facing them.


Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain

but for the heart to conquer it.


Let me not look for allies in life's battlefield

but to my own strength.


Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved

but hope for the patience to win my freedom.

~ Rabindranath Tagore



'Thank you' is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.

~ Alice Walker

In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.

~ Gandhi




I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. 

~e. e. cummings
