This is a wonderful quote from Kahlil Gibran. We should make it a daily practice to pray whether it is in a time of need or not. When we pray, it can be a thankful and mindful practice that acknowledges the good that comes into our lives.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  4. I found today’s post very enlightening. The Poet Gibran is quite good, I had not heard of him until today. Thank-You for introducing him. This was the one I like the best. ”“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.” ” This gives me great hope. I am the director/directress of a Lay Carmelite Community. My soul has been seared with scars by some members who don’t like my quiet gently style of leadership. Again Thank-You.
