Lord, this is all my desire -- to walk along the path
of life that Thou hast appointed me, even as Jesus my
Lord would walk along it, in steadfastness of faith, in
meekness of spirit, in lowliness of heart, in gentleness
of love. And because outward events have so much
power in scattering my thoughts and disturbing the
inward peace in which alone the voice of Thy spirit
is heard, do Thou, gracious Lord, calm and settle my
soul by that subduing power which alone can bring
all thoughts and desires of the heart into captivity
to Thyself. All I have is Thine; do Thou with all as
seems best to Thy divine will; for I know not what
is best. Let not the cares or duties of this life press
on me too heavily; but lighten my burden, that I
may follow Thy way in quietness, filled with
thankfulness for Thy mercy, and rendering
acceptable service unto Thee.


Maria Hare (1798-1870)

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are
heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart: and
ye shall find rest unto your souls."


Matthew 12: 28-30
Holy Bible
King James Version



With your soothing fingers,
wipe away the lines that worries have
have etched in our faces.
Surround us with calm,
let us rest in the glow of peace,
as if we were encircled with the
Moon's own light.
Let our concerns and tensions
drain away from us,
pouring as water into your Earth.

Ceisiwr Serith
Excerpted from "A Book of Pagan Prayer,"
by Ceisiwr Serith

Guard well your spare moments. They are like
uncut diamonds. Discard them and their
value will never be known. Improve them and
they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.


Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
American poet and essayist


Relaxation means releasing all concerns and tension and
letting the natural order of the life flow through one's being.

Donald  Curtis

This art of resting the mind and the power of
dismissing from it all care and worry is probably
one of the secrets of energy in our great men.

Since God offers to manage our affairs for us,
let us once and for all hand them over to His
infinite wisdom, in order to occupy ourselves only
with Himself and what belongs to HIm.


Jean Pierre de Caussade (1675- 1751)
French priest who wrote letters of instruction and
encouragement to the Nuns of the Visitation at Nancy

i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky: and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
