The First Half . . . A Message from Friar Giovanni

There is nothing I can give you
that you do not already have.
But there is much that, while I cannot give it,
you can take.

No heaven can come to us
unless our hearts find rest in today.
Take heaven!

No peace lies in the future
which is not hidden
in this present instant.
Take peace.

    How often do we not receive a potential gift because we do not dispose ourselves to take it? Like a parent that would give wisdom to their children, but standing helpless at the door because the child will not heed their advice. We stand in front of so many doors that would open if we would but knock. Old parable. Still rings true.
