Ash Wednesday quote

“I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind. Yet, strange, I am ungrateful for those teachings.”

from “Sand and Foam”
Kahlil Gibran

A Soul Restored

You don’t have to be religious to have a soul; everybody has one. You don’t have to be religious to perfect your soul; I have found saintliness in avowed atheists. But maybe you have to be religious to have your soul restored.

Harold S. Kushner

Celebrating Sam

These are the words of a son who honours his father, and celebrates his life:
He showed strength until the end.
He had a strong faith, not only in God, but in his family and friends.
For many, he has been a lighthouse beacon in our lives.
I encourage you to fondly remember my father.
Do something kind and generous for someone, when you think of him.
Let us be content for him, as he has sailed home to his creator.
