Rainy Day Appreciation!

I find myself this morning, reflective.  I leave early Thursday for a retreat.  What comes to me now before I go?  These words are my guide for this moment, today.

James Alison: “Give people a common enemy, and you will give them a common identity.  Deprive them of an enemy and you will deprive them of the crutch by which they know who they are.”

I am the leaf on the tree, rain given and received.  I am the lake reflecting, unharmed, each of us, all of us, precious and unique, no need of a crutch.
