For I know well the plans I have in mind for
you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare,
not for woe! plans to give you a future full
of hope. When you call me, when you go to
pray to me, I will listen to you. When you
look for me, you will find me. Yes, when
you seek me with all your heart, you will
find me with you, says the Lord...
Jeremiah 29: 11-14
New American Bible
Throughout all generations
we will render thanks unto Thee
And declare Thy praise,
Evening, morning, and noon,
For our lives which are in Thy care,
For our souls which are in Thy keeping,
For thy miracles which we witness daily,
And for Thy wondrous deeds and blessings
toward us at all times.
Thank you for This Amazing Day
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 yes
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth
day of life and love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)
how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any-lifted from the no
of all nothing-human merely being
doubt unimaginably You ?
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
e. e. cummings (1894-1962)

SOME unseen fingers, like idle breeze,
are playing upon my heart the music of the ripples.
Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941)

poet, Brahmo Samaj philosopher, artist, composer
O tender Father,
you gave me more, much more
than I ever thought to ask for.
I realize that our human desires
can never really match
what you long to give us.
and again thanks, O Father,
for having granted my petitions, and
that which I never realized I needed

But in my distress I cried out to the Lord;
yes, I cried to my God for help.
He heard me from his sanctuary;
my cry reached his ears.
