Thoughts for 2000
In all of our days ahead let us lavish
those we love with an extra serving
of kindness mixed with understanding
and an embracing of our uniqueness.
Each of us is like an individual snowflake,
matchless and distinct, placed here
for a short while before once again
joining nature's ageless cycle of
change and reawakening.
Cherish the moments we have
here together for in this way
we honor the spark within
each one of us that is God.
Recognize this spark as unique to the
individual yet much the same as
each fragment is to a whole.
Seen thus we are like the individual
snowflakes as they join together to
blanket the earth beneath a starry sky.
"The divine in me greets the divine in you."
