Saint Theresa's prayer:


May today there be peace within.  May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.  May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.  May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.  May you be content knowing you are a child of God.  Let this presence 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.

The Autism Puzzle
Something To Ponder
 
We have all heard the saying, you can't fit a square peg in a round hole.
If you try to fit a square peg in a round hole you have to force it in.
Some may even try to pound it in so it fits.
In the process the peg becomes damaged.
Now ponder this...
What happens when you put a round peg in a square hole?
It will slide in easily and move about freely.
It can spin completely around in a full circle.
What is the moral of the story, you might ask.
It is easier to change the environment to suit the Autistic child,
Than it is to change the Autistic child to suit the environment.

"Life may not be the party we hope for, but while we are here we might as well dance…"  Author Unknown

A smile must always be on our lips for any child [and I would say "any person"] to whom we offer help, for any to whom we give companionship or medicine.  It would be very wrong to offer only our cures: we must offer to all our hearts.   Mother Teresa

"I believe there is a price tag on everything worthwhile, but it is seldom a monetary one. The price is more often one of dedication, extra effort, loneliness. Each person decides whether he or she wants to pay the price. If you do, you achieve beyond other people."
Jim McKay, Sports Broadcaster

"If we truly believed that the Spirit of God was working in us like fire, there would be such commotion in our daily lives that the media would be full of it, and celebrations of Thanksgiving and Fourth of July would pale by comparison."
Reverend Anthony J. Gittens

"Constant kindness can accomplish much.  As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstandings, mistrust and hostility to evaporate".  Albert Schweitzer

"When I meditate upon the wounds upon the risen Christ, I encounter the disabled God."  Author Unknown

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

“… I invite each one of you to work ever harder at the integration of persons with disabilities into society, into the world of work and into the Christian community, as I remind you that every human life deserves respect and must be protected from its conception to its natural end. I assure my support and my prayers to all those who are already dedicated to this immense task.”

POPE BENEDICT XVI

St Peter's Square
Second Sunday of Advent, 4 December 2005

"Lose the ego. Acknowledge your fear (you're not alone).

Share your stories. Find Common Ground. Tah-Da!" --Dan Wilkins
