{June 4, 2010}   For the Heart to Conquer it..

“Let me Pray not 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 crave in anxious fear to be saved
but hope for the patience to win my freedom
Grant me that I may not be a coward,
feeling your mercy in my success alone;
but let me find the grasp of your hand in my failure

– Rabindranath Tagore, Fruit Gathering

Just a little something to think about today, and when you feel lonely…
