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.

Patience

Can attain anything.

She who has God within,

Does not lack anything.

God is enough.
