“Correct with kindness and love but also with zeal and holy freedom. If you do not speak out, if you do not sound the alarm when it is needed, you will be justly convicted by your silence.” – St. Mary Euphrasia
George W. Bush was walking through an airport last week, when he saw an old man with white hair, a long white beard, wearing a long white robe and holding a staff. He walked up to the man, who was staring at the ceiling, and said, “Excuse me, sir, aren’t you, um, Moses?”
The man stood perfectly still and continued to stare at the ceiling, saying nothing. Again George W. asked, a little louder this time, “Excuse me, sir, aren’t you Moses?” Again the old man stared at the ceiling motionless without saying a word. George W. tried a third time, louder yet, “Excuse me, sir, aren’t you Moses?” Again, no movement or words from the old man. He continued to stare at the ceiling.
One of George W’s aides asked him if there was a problem. W said, “Either this man is deaf or extremely rude. I’ve asked him three times if he was Moses, and he has not answered me yet.” To which the man, still staring at the ceiling finally replied, “I can hear you, and yes, I *am* Moses, but the last time I spoke to a bush, I spent 40 years wandering in the wilderness.”

“Gratefulness is a setting of the heart, one that I can choose like a wavelength on the radio.” – Susan Mazrolle
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” – Melody Beattie
