Friday- a day when doors can look more playful- when they might even spark ideas to slow the pace and bring out creativity to refresh the spirit.
We thank God for every day but Friday can bring a gleam in our eyes and fill our hearts with gratitude. Whatever day is your Friday- may it offer the promise of time.

Door of the day… (Cyprus entrance Kykkos monastery -Pinterest) A peaceful entrance into sacred space- may we find our own entrance into a place of peace. Our concerns are always near – let us take this time to renew our faith and commitment to compassion and justice.
