Give me the heart

I have spent the past few days saturated in extraordinary music, delicious food, dear friends – and almost completely off of the grid, just checking in from time to time with the office and the work phone to keep disasters to a minimum.

Today I return to the world of administration and e-mail, deadlines and accountability, pastoral care and organizing.

Today I pray to the universe “give me the heart.” Give me the heart to love, the heart of compassion and commitment. Give me the heart of return, the heart of restoration.

And I will give. I will give thanks for the gift of life, for the gift of love and compassion bestowed with grace. In my gratitude, I will serve with heart.

I will live from a place of gratitude.

I will say thank you.

Thank you, universe.
