Quote: “Spirit has fifty times the strength and staying power of brawn and muscle.”  —Mark Twain

Picture/symbol:  Yellow water lily

Color:  Yellow

From out of the depths of darker places; Up from the mud of past death and decay; Surpassing all that would consume our tender shoots of hopeful possibility — We journey beyond the cold past toward a golden light of new life.  With each motion forward, we come closer to our own blossoming future.

And so, for Spirit that offers us energy to keep going; for Spirit that leads us beyond old regrets with surprising strength; for Spirit that guides us along better paths; for Spirit that empowers indescribable beauty in unsuspecting places – we give thanks, beyond even our words.

To this time, Spirit brings only what we already have the potential to become, moving us toward a radiant light of new day, until, finally, we too blossom with a golden brilliance, offering Spirit for a world in such great need. Amen. —Warren Lynn
