Today

today I was alone in the Shrine for 30 minutes
and I let the rare tears fall
today I realized that the jasmine flowers are opening up
and I chased the faint scent around the gardens
today I thanked God for allowing me to be here
and asked for the strength to be of service
today I felt the sun on my face
and realized how alone I have been.

  1. Don’t feel alone! You are never alone, and you are in His Holiest place – think of how close you are to Him every day. We here are all thinking of you and I feel blessed to know you are there, and representing me.
