“Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. The friends who listen to us are the ones we move toward. When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand.”
—Karl A. Menniger
When I saw this magnolia flower on a newly blossoming tree, I had to stop and breathe in its smile, its freshness.
Also, it was a reflection image for me in the Lenten Photo-A-Day activity I spoke of yesterday. The focus word was: alone.
“It is God’s power that carries us through every moment. If we are aware of this, we will spontaneously be humble, our attitude towards the Almighty will be transformed into an attitude of worship, our focus on Him will blossom with our every step and we will be successful in our efforts.”
—Amma, “Awaken Children”
