My Heart Song

Posted on January 7th, 2012 by & filed under Be Inspired, Quotes & Notes

“. . . I am like a brook that makes no effort to overcome obstacles on its way.

All the obstacles can do is hold me up for a while, as a brook is held up;

but during that time it grows broader and deeper

and after awhile it overflows the obstruction and flows along again.

That is how I am going to work.”

-Fr. William Joseph Chaminade

A river runs through it, near Camp Nelson

    I received a lovely email form Raam Dev after reading his thoughts on fluidity. . .

    That’s beautiful, Melissa! The photos really complete the point and make it feel tangible! That quote reminded me of the importance of patience: If we’re impatient all the time, we won’t hold out until we grow “broader and deeper” and overcome obstacles. Awareness of our potential must be coupled with patience. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing!
