learning to live

      It’s easy to hurry through life in me-first mode, hands clenched and arms crossed, but learning to live arms-wide-open takes practice. (It helps to stretch your real arms wide open every once in a while, just to get the feel of it . . . when nobody’s looking.)

“[P]ractice is one of the most important words in the spiritual life. . . .” Sr. Macrina Wiederkehr

“Open your heart wide. . . .” 2 Corinthians 6:13
