Take time out from your busy day to reflect.

Try reading holy scripture or saying a prayer.


Journey of Life

For each of us life is like a journey. Birth is the begining of this journey, and death is not the end but the destination.

It is a journey that takes us. From youth to age, from innoncence to awareness, from ignorance to knowledge, from foolishness to wisdom, from weakness to strength and often back again, from offence to forgiveness, from loneliness to friendship, from pain to compassion, from fear to faith, from defeat to victory and from victory to defeat, until, looking backward or ahead, we see that victory does not lie at some point along the way, but in having made the journey, stage by stage.

(Adapted from an old Hebrew prayer)
