St. Theresa's Prayer


May today there be peace within.
May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities
that are born of faith in yourself and others.

May you use the gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content with yourself just the way you are.
Let this knowledge settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.


Thanks to my dear friend Pat for sending this beautiful poem to me today!

Oh wow - have been feeling a little miserable, when this caught my eye, Theresa's my confirmation name and have always felt close to her, even though I am not hugely religious now. However this prayer came exactly at the right time. Thank you x
