love, prayer and life

“Perhaps love is the process of my leading you gently back to yourself.”
Prayer is not asking for what you think you want, but asking to be changed in ways you can’t imagine.
~ Kathleen Norris
To laugh is to risk appearing the fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out to another is to risk involvement.
To express feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss.
To love is to risk being loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To hope is to risk despair.
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be takenbecause the greatestHazard in life is to risk nothing.
