Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? -Henri Nouwen

“Did I let go of resentment?  Did I forgive?  Did I love?” asks Henri Nouwen, author of over 40 books on spirituality.  He was a Catholic priest who taught at universities including Harvard and Yale Divinity Schools.  He died in 1996 after living the final years of his life with people with mental disabilities at the L’Arche-Daybreak Community in Canada.

“These are the real questions,” he continues.  “I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits here in this world and the life to come.”

This week, I encourage you to smile often and bring a smile to others!

Enjoy a happy and productive week –
