May the light of your soul guide you...

The girls were sitting at the garden table all afternoon simply drawing.

A simple drawing book and a pencil should never be underrated.


May the light of your soul guide you.
May the light of your soul bless the work


You do with the secret love and warmth of your heart.
May you see in what you do the beauty of your own soul.


May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light and renewal to those
Who work with you and to those who see and receive your work.


May your work never weary you.
May it release within you wellsprings of refreshment, inspiration and excitement.


May you be present in what you do.
May you never become lost in the bland absences.


May the day never burden you.
May dawn find you awake and alert, approaching your new day with dreams,
Possibilities and promises.


May evening find you gracious and fulfilled.


May you go into the night blessed, sheltered and protected.
May your soul calm, console and renew you.

"May the light of your soul guide you"
John O' Donohue


I pray today that I will be guided by the light of my soul.

Not those bright, unremitting, startling lights that distract.
But the gentle, light that wades into soft child steps.

The light which warms all things,
draws tree sap to the surface
with transparent strings.

This is the light I will seek
and follow.


  1. Lovely, Suzy.
    We're finally having a day of gentle sunshine and no rain today, I'm hoping to spend quite a bit of it at the garden table in quiet pursuit.

  2. luminous you are, Suzy.


  3. So very lovely!!! Pictures and verse. I especially like these lines. "May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light and renewal to those
    Who work with you and to those who see and receive your work."

    Thank you! Cathy

  4. Thank you for this beautiful post. I love the way you've woven the photographs and the poem together, and added your own poem. The image of the light drawing the sap up by invisible threads is wonderful!

  5. Beautiful! Thank you for the light filled words. I was praying this morning to let go of the rush. These words are just what I needed. I'm going back up to read them again, maybe even read them to Ceesa and Jo-Jo.

  6. Beautiful words. And your girls are lovely!

  7. Just what I needed to read this morning. Thank you Suzy, coming here is always like a meditation for me, I have missed it :).
    Happy Sunday to you and your gorgeous family...


I treasure each and every one of your comments.
Your kind words never fail to bring a smile to my face:)
At the moment I am going through a busy season of life with 5 girls under my wing! I may not always be able to respond immediately but please know that every word left here is read and appreciated deeply.
