A sacred ceremony....

We attended Chance's graduation from medical school today. The room was darkened and the music was inspirational and the actual ceremony and hooding of each 111 doctors was a blessing for our whole world. In a brief presentation their studies, researches and new beginnings were proudly expressed and the gratitude toward family, parents and spouses with young families were a bouquet of diverse cultures, races, and affirmations for a healing future. I am so proud of this young couple with their hard work and dedication during the last nine years to meet their goals and make a better world for us all.

Wheel of God
You are a wheel at which I stand,
whose dark spokes sometimes catch me up,
revolve me nearer to the center.
Then all the work I put my hand to
widens from turn to turn.

from the Book of Hours I, 45

May we all risk to support a new idea, anew profession, a new family ...a new direction with a new focus and new direction. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart


  1. New is good but hold tight to the wisdom of the past. :)Bea

  2. I agree with Bea...always keep yourself open to new horizons, but keep acquired wisdom within you.

    Have a wonderful week.
