Heart of Wonder how astounding it is to live each and every day. How astounding and how frightening and how gladsome and how sorrowful and how good and how bad it is to live each and every day. Let us not make the easy mistake of believing that if somehow we were perfect that no grief would befall us, that there would be no days of struggle, that we would suddenly be free of responsibilities and that freedom from the relationships that shape us and give our lives meaning would be a good. Heart of Wonder how easy it is to believe that if one thing were different, no other struggles would exist. But there is great responsibility with freedom and without, great need whether or not we have many resources, great opportunities to share our gifts for goodness' sake wherever we are, whoever we are. Heart of Wonder lead us into greater wisdom, that we may embrace each and every day as a chance to love more boldly, to be more generous than seems prudent, to risk our hearts and hopes to bless this world more than we are blessed by it. Amen.
