Awe is deep respect and reverence for the Source of life. It is humility and wonder before the power of God. Contemplating life‘s beauty and mystery leads us to communion. Reflecting on our place in the universe, we seem small and insignificant, yet it is awe-inspiring to realise that no one else on earth is just like us. Each of us has a unique potential for reflecting the Divine virtues in our souls. We awaken them by choosing to live them. When we practice awe, we are alert to the signs and wonders placed in our path. We open ourselves to Grace. (The Virtues Project)
How do I remain positive in times of adversity?
I would have expected the answer to be perseverance or determination. No, it‘s Awe, that I am reminded of. „I am reminded of the sacredness of life.“ (The Virtues Project)

A messenger from the heavens
This little creature has been coming regularly and delighting me with its playfulness, coming very close, teasing and hard to catch with my camera.
I am reminded of my beloved Mirjam, who once danced with a whole group of these delightful birds. It’s a message from her.
