"Touched by an Angel" Maya Angelou (b. 1928)
We, unaccustomed to courage exiles from delight live coiled in shells of loneliness until love leaves its high holy temple and comes into our sight to liberate us into life. Love arrives and in its train come ecstasies old memories of pleasure ancient histories of pain. Yet if we are bold, love strikes away the chains of fear from our souls. We are weaned from our timidity In the flush of love's light we dare be brave And suddenly we see that love costs all we are and will ever be. Yet it is only love which sets us free.
To Pray for
All our hospices and their patients, especially Children's hospices as we end the national week of Awareness for them.
For those families who have missing loved ones following the building collaspe in Miami.
Peace on earth
