I’m channeling the dog from “Up” today as I try to center myself with all that is before me.  I find January to be full of distractions and centering, distractions and centering.  I came across this prayer from Teresa of Avila today and was struck by the last two sentences in particular.  I’ve been disturbed of late by a number of issues so it was a good word for me today.  Ponder and pray:

May nothing disturb you.

May nothing astonish you.

Everything passes.

God does not go away.


Can attain anything.

She who has God within,

Does not lack anything.

God is enough.
