Don’t Burn Out the Candle

A Smoldering Flame

And as for me, that moment haunts me. Simply because, as Ban Breathnach also says, “a smoldering flame can be just as deadly as a flash fire.”

Sudden Realization

My youngest son mentioned that he had asked his dad if he would ever get back together with me. And his dad had said, “I’d just get hit over the head with a frying pan.”

Something’s Out of Whack

So, instead of feeling that there was something wrong with him, I probably should have realized that, as Ban Breathnach also says, “There’s something terribly out of whack: you.”

Instead of Settling for Tyranny

Lately, I’ve learned that you need to kindle the fire of love in your heart that provides warmth and security and compassion for others as well as for yourself.

Praying For All Your Worth

For true love isn’t a matter of control. It’s a matter of setting others free. Free to live the life they desire to live. Free to learn to be who they really are.
