Henri Nouwen…

is one of my favorite authors to read and reflect on….

Today this quote is really speaking to my soul…

“So I am praying while not knowing how to pray.
I am resting while feeling restless,
at peace while tempted,
safe while still anxious,
surrounded by a cloud of light
while still in darkness,
in love while still doubting.”
-Henri Nouwen

There is something about embracing a life that is not structured in black and white thoughts…

There is something about embracing a heart that is full of  what you might consider conflicting thoughts…

There is something about embracing honesty and sharing that my life is simply a complex mystery….

I wonder if you read Henri Nouwen’s words and feel them resonate in your heart…

I am choosing to believe I am not alone…..

    Your courage to model being curious about things undone and unseen are a gift, Trish…
