A Quote, a Scripture, and a Blessing for Your Self

Dear Kaleid Ladies,

Good morning! Today we conclude our walk through of Kaleid’s See Yourself lens. It’s been good to explore our purpose, passion, and power together, slowly…pausing to consider God’s gift of creativity planted in each of us and growing in the soil of our unique life experience. Today we want to offer you the simplicity of a quote, a scripture, and a blessing. We pray that in these words you may find courage, clarity, and compassion for whatever has been awakened in you as you have noticed the Spirit’s life in your own purpose, passion, and power.

A Quote:

There is a saying credited to a 19th century Polish Hasidic Rabbi named Simcha Bunim:

“Everyone must have two pockets, with a note in each pocket, so that he or she can reach into one or the other, depending on the need. When feeling lowly and depressed, discouraged or disconsolate, one should reach into the right pocket, and there, find the words: Bishvili nivra ha-olamThe world was created for me.’ (BT Sanhedrin 37B) But when feeling high and mighty one should reach into the left pocket and find the words: V’anochi afar v’eferI am but dust and ashes.’” (Gen. 18:27)

A Scripture: Psalm 90

Before the mountains were begotten and the earth and the world were brought forth, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. You turn man back to dust, saying, "Return, O children of men."

For a thousand years in your sight are as yesterday, now that it is past, or as a watch of the night. You make an end of them in their sleep; the next morning they are like the changing grass, Which at dawn springs up anew, but by evening wilts and fades. Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain wisdom of heart.

Return, O LORD! How long? Have pity on your servants! Fill us at daybreak with your kindness, that we may shout for joy and gladness all our days.

Make us glad, for the days when you afflicted us, for the years when we saw evil.

Let your work be seen by your servants and your glory by their children.

A Blessing

Remember that you are created from the same dust as the stars

Remember that you are claimed as God’s beloved

Remember that you are called by your beautiful name

And remember that whatever joy

Whatever laughter

Whatever fear

Whatever sorrow

Whatever pain

You experience

God is ever present with you.

We would love to see you this summer at our book club on June 14 and 28 as we discuss Lisa Sharon Harpers The Very Good Gospel over dessert and drinks!

We are so grateful for you!
