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 spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  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.
