Celebration

Celebration is gratitude expressing itself

as life joyfully gives thanks

Let your laughter be a celebration of your spirit

And your tears a celebration of your mourning

The giving of your voice a celebration of your belonging

Your thoughts a celebration of creation

And each of your actions, a celebration of your love

See your mistakes as a celebration of your learning

Your triumphs a celebration of your courage

Your passion a celebration of all that dwells in your heart

Ans at the end, your dying as a celebration of your living

Have it all

unashamedly

Celebrate it all

As you smile back at God.

-Jane Pujji

Giving Thanks

It’s gratitude that keeps the heart strong

that melts the fear

that breaks the spell

that leads you to the gold

It’s gratitude that opens the door

and shows the way

that answers the questions

which worry the mind

and close the heart

It’s gratitude that has 

a thousand happy Gods

dancing through your garden

throwing blessings

sowing seeds of grace

upon your life.

– Jane Pujji

Serenity prayer

Lord, grant me the serenity

To accept the things

I Cannot change

The courage to change

the things I can

And the wisdom to know the difference.

– American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr

 

 

 

” Smile at each other; smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other-it doesn’t matter who it is-and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other. “
