“Faith and Trust and Pixie Dust”


“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely the world offers itself to your imagination, call to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting – over and over announcing your place in the family of things.”    
(Mary  Oliver) 



“You must make a decision that you are going to move on.  It won’t happen automatically.  You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.”     (Joel Osteen, Your Best Life Now:  7 Steps to Living Your Full Potential)



“Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.  Give everyone a smile.  Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others.  Be too big for worry and too noble for anger.”     (Norman Vincent Peale) 



“None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet still we go forward.  Because we trust. Because we have Faith.”     (Paolo Coelho, Brida)     



“All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.”     (J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan)
