Into life a little rain must fall...

This was actually a pic I took last year, but it reminds me of Spring and the rain and all things alive and growing.  It does rain a lot in Washington, but after a while you get so used to it that you don't know what you would do without it.

Rabindranath Tagore

Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.

From the solemn gloom of the temple children run out to sit in the dust, God watches them play and forgets the Priest.

Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them.  Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it.  Let me not look for allies in life's battlefield but to my own strength.  Let me not cave in.

When I stand before thee at the days end, thou shalt see my scars and know that I had my wounds and also my healing.

Death is not extinguishing the light, it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.

You can't cross the sea by merely standing and staring at the water.
