Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.

"It was a Christmas as unique as any other.
For every year the mystery unfolds itself anew.
And late in life,
I came to see that faith, like hope, is a rope and anchor in a shifting world.
Faith cannot be questioned, only lived.
And if I could not grasp it then, 
I felt its heartbeat,
which was love."

~Call the Midwife

Drink your wine.
Laugh with your gut.
Burden your moments with thankfulness.
Be as empty as you can be with that clock winds down.
Spend your life.
And if time is a river,
may you leave a wake.
~N.D. Wilson

Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.

Where Charity and Love are, God is there.

Encourage one another,
